Everyone but the very rich and hermits have neighbors and those neighbors can get noisy especially if the have kids. If that happens late at night it can be dealt with by calling the police, but when it happens in the middle of the day, you need to just grin and bear it. That was the case of a birthday party thrown in Port St Lucie, Florida. The mother had rented one of those inflatable bouncing rooms which young kids simply love.
That is until a man walked into the backyard and unplugged the house, which immediately began to deflate with about a dozen young children getting trapped under the heavy rubber which the house is made of. It was a hot day and parents were afraid for their kids that were trapped having a heat stroke. They eventually managed to get all of thhe kids out, but one they had to drag out by one leg.
Even though the bounce house birthday party was probably annoying for the neighbor, pulling the plug on the party house was way out of line. Especially considering that it was still in use, this Port St Lucie neighbor endangered the twelve children still playing on it.
The stranger was caught on surveillance cameras committing the act. Now police are searching for the grumpy neighbor who refused to let little children have a good time in the middle of the day.
If you’ve never bounced on one of these bounce castles, know that the plastic is extremely heavy. And if a child is very small, it could threaten their life. Suffocation was a reality in this incident.
Deborah Romero was outraged. She claims children were still using the inflatable house during her daughter’s birthday party. When the frumpy neighbor pulled the plug on the fun, it suddenly started to deflate.
The surveillance footage was reviewed after the criminal incident. Romero watched as an unknown man in his 60s walked onto the property and ruined the fun. Not only did he pull the plug on the bounce house, he also threatened the lives of twelve little children.
After ruining the party, the angry neighbor leaves the property and walks back out onto the street.
When the surveillance footage was shared in a YouTube video, people across the internet began calling the party-plug-puller a “bad neighbor” and a “piece of trash.” It is hard to argue with these apt names for the bad man.
Police told WPEC that they canvassed the area but failed to find the horrible neighbor. Although none of the other residents on the street admitted who the man was, this is not the first time he has struck. Romero admitted that her house has been targeted before. During the holidays, her family’s Christmas lights were cut. It must have been this man.
It is assumed that Port St. Lucie residents are withholding information about the man. But if they knew what their neighbor was up to, they would expose his criminal ways and contact the police.
