The first two victims of the bouncy castle accident have been identified in Australia. That was caught by the wind on Thursday morning and thrown into the air, after which five children fell deadly. The country mourns Addison Stewart and Zane Gardam.
The two children were in sixth grade at Hillcrest Primary School in Devonport, on the Australian island of Tasmania. A bouncy castle at that school was caught by the wind around 10 a.m. local time on Thursday and flung into the air. Five children who were in the bouncy castle were killed. Three other students were taken to hospital in critical condition, and a ninth student was also seriously injured.
Of the five fatalities, only the identities of Addison Stewart and Zane Gardam have been confirmed for the time being. However, a GoFundMe page has already been set up for both children so that sympathizers can support the relatives financially.
“Zane was such a beautiful, sweet, caring boy. Growing up with autism and ADHD was a challenge, but that never stopped him.” “This affects so many people, and we as a community want to do everything we can to make things a little easier for his mother, Georgie during these difficult times.”
On the GoFundMe page for Addison, her aunt Meghan writes: “My niece was tragically taken from us in an accident. Everyone is devastated: she was always such a gentle, kind old soul. I’m hoping to raise some money for my brother and sister-in-law to pay for the funeral expenses. They also have to take care of another daughter and a son, which I hope will relieve some of the stress for them.”
