Tragedy at a Tasmanian school

Five children have been killed today after a freak gust of wind lifted a bouncing castle 10m/33ft into the air at their end-of-school-year party. This happened at the school just half an hour into the celebrations, in front of the entire school. Several more children remain in a critical condition in hospital.

Please pray for the deceased and their friends and families as well as those who witnessed the tragedy, and the first responders who have been dealing with the situation. Please also pray for a swift recovery for those children still fighting their injuries.

Warning: some distressing details and photographs in this story.

That’s so awful… praying for all the families.

The sixth child succumbed to their injuries today. There are only three survivors now. Please keep praying, everyone.
