Safety concerns after boy rescued from sea

High winds lifted boy on bouncy castle into sea at Douglas Carnival

The question of safety has been raised after a boy was rescued from the sea in Douglas when playing on a bouncy castle.

The youngster was lifted in the high winds, along with the castle, off the promenade and into the sea.

The boy was retreived by a member of the public and taken to Noble's Hospital as a precaution.

Val Rise is a parent and saw the scene unfold - she says it shouldn't have happened.

Douglas Borough Council has confirmed a full investigation into the incident is underway.
