On May 1, 2019, the Associated Student Body of Zillah High School was holding an event at the high school that included an inflatable that was rented from and set up by a third-party company (All About Fun, LLC). At approximately 2:30 p.m., a sudden and unexpected wind event occurred that pulled the anchoring stakes loose and caused the inflatable to become airborne. The incident caused injuries to four students. The situation was investigated by the Zillah Police Department, who determined that safety protocols had been met and that the equipment was in serviceable, working condition. According to the law enforcement investigation, notwithstanding the safety protocols, a “large dust devil wind gust dislodged [the] inflatable interactive game.” Zillah School District does not have any additional information regarding the cause of this accident.

 

The entire staff of Zillah School District is heartbroken that students were injured and our thoughts are with all of the students and families affected by this accident. In order to protect the privacy rights of the students involved, Zillah School District will not be releasing any additional information about the students involved or any injuries they received.
