Eight children were taken to hospitals Friday afternoon when the inflatable slide they were playing on flipped onto its side.

The accident happened about 1 p.m. at Robinson School in west suburban Lyons. Police say it appears the children were on the stairs at the top of the slide when it toppled over. They were playing on the slide as part of a year-end activity.

Police say most of the children were shaken and scared but no one was seriously hurt. An investigation is underway to determine what caused the slide to fall.
