"Killed by the Bouncy Castle"

July 24, 2006 09:07 AM

NBS loves the Daily Mirror, the British paper formerly edited by Piers Morgan.  We especially love the headlines and the melodrama.  Surely no American paper would have the gall to run a headline "Killed by the Bouncy Castle."  Well, expect maybe the New York Post.  But in any event, for the full story on the bouncy castle tragedy, go here.

"HORRIFIED witnesses told last night how they watched helplessly as parents and children plummeted to the ground after a huge bouncy castle was sent rocketing 120ft into the air.

The 160ft square inflatable called Dreamspace soared over the tops of trees before somersaulting and crashing back to earth, killing two women and injuring at least a dozen others."
