Authorities say one of the two young New York boys injured in a freak accident involving an airborne inflatable bounce house is recovering at home.

Police in South Glens Falls tell local media that the 6-year-old boy was released from the hospital earlier this month. He suffered two broken arms and facial injuries in the May 12 accident.

Police say they have no new information on the 5-year-old boy who was in a coma after suffering a serious head injury.

Officials say the two boys and a 10-year-old girl were inside the 10-by-10 bounce house when a strong gust of wind blew it off the ground at an apartment complex. The girl tumbled out immediately and suffered minor injuries, but the two boys fell out 15 to 20 feet from the ground.

The accident remains under investigation.
