LITTLETON, CO (CNN) - Two children were hurt when a gust of wind sent an inflatable slide tumbling across a field in Colorado on Saturday.

The slide rolled nearly 300 feet before coming to a stop.

Witnesses say a girl was thrown off the slide when it started to blow away.

She was not seriously hurt.

First responders say a boy trapped on the slide was carried across the field on the inflatable.

He was taken to the hospital but is expected to be OK.

The company that operates the slide says it followed all proper safety precautions.
