Nanneella Estate Primary School students Dylan Surmiak and Elijah Foley were in disbelief after a freak wind caused a trampoline to soar more than 20 metres in the air.
A freak gust of wind sent a Nanneella family’s trampoline soaring over powerlines and gumtrees on Friday afternoon.
Helen Surmiak, who lives across from Nanneella Estate Primary School, said she had just picked up her son Dylan from school when their trampoline came crashing down outside the school about 3.30pm.
‘‘It went (from the backyard) above the house, over the powerlines and trees and landed over there by the drain,” she said, pointing at the other side of the road.
She said when the trampoline moved it appeared to hover over the house as if caught on a gust of wind and on its descent knocked down her neighbour’s fencepost.
Mrs Surmiak could not believe it did not hit children leaving school, the powerlines or cars.
She stopped the school traffic while her husband cleared the debris from the road.
The smaller trampoline and everything else in the back yard remained unmoved.
‘‘It’s as still as anything,’’ she said.
‘‘How could that happen?’’
