The cries of the children could be heard after the abnormal wind calmed down and the structure remained folded up on itself.
Local reports said six children were taken to hospital for treatment, but the severity of their injuries was unclear.
Staff in the tourist area where the bouncy castle was placed reportedly distanced themselves from the incident, saying the attraction was owned and had nothing to do with individuals.
It was reported that the accident is currently under investigation by local authorities.
Meanwhile, it was announced yesterday that a sixth child has died as a result of the jumping castle disaster in Australia.
Tasmanian Police Commissioner Darren Hine has confirmed that 11-year-old Chace Harrison died on Sunday afternoon – three days after the horrific accident.
The tragedy unfolded on December 16 at Hillcrest Primary School in Devonport, northern Tasmania, when the bouncy house was swept away by a ‘mini-tornado’.
Police released the names of the five other 5th and 6th graders who lost their lives in the disaster on Friday – Zane Mellor, Peter Dodt, Jye Sheehan, Jalailah Jayne-Maree Jones, all 12, and Addison Stewart , 11 years old.

Two children are in critical condition at Royal Hobart Hospital, and Beau Medcraft, 12, was released on Friday to recover at home.
Prime Minister Peter Gutwein said Chace’s family was traumatized, but agreed to allow authorities to release his name.
“We have offices there with them and to make sure they can return to Devonport safely, so we have a support mechanism to help them deal with this incredible and traumatic situation,” he said. he declares.
When asked how long the police investigation into the disaster would take, Mr Gutwein said: It is too early to tell, but a lot of the investigation needs to be put together.
“We don’t want to rush things, but we also understand that the community wants answers.”
Mr Gutwein also explained that there were more than 40 children in grades 5 and 6 at the graduation ceremony on Thursday morning.
“We know it is difficult for those involved, so we want to make sure we have the best services to interview all the children involved,” he said.
