After a gust of wind caused a jump castle to be blown into the air 10m high at an end-of-2018 celebration, a sixth child died.

Darren Hine, Tasmanian Police Commissioner confirmed the death of Chace Harrison on Sunday afternoon – just three days following the terrible accident.   

A mini-tornado struck the school’s bouncing house at Hillcrest Primary School Devonport in northern Tasmania on Thursday morning.

Police released Friday the names of five Year 6 and 5 students who died in the catastrophe on Friday – Jalailah Jayne Jones, Peter Dodt and Jye Sheehan – all ages 12, and Addison Stewart.

Royal Hobart Hospital is currently caring for two critically ill children. Beau Medcraft (12 years old) was released to go home on Friday. 

Premier Peter Gutwein stated that Chace’s relatives are suffering from trauma, but he agreed for authorities to remove his name.

He stated that they have an office there to assist them in their traumatic situations. 

When asked how long the police investigation into the disaster will take, Mr Gutwein said: It is too early to say but there is a lot of pieces of the investigation that need to be pulled together.’

“We do not want to rush but we are aware that there is a need in the community for information.”

Gutwein explained that there were over 40 year 5/6 children present at Thursday’s graduation ceremony.

He stated that ‘we know how difficult it can be for the involved’ and that he wanted to make sure he had the best possible services interview all children affected.

“We must do it sensitively, and we accept the invitation of NSW Police for their help.”

On Sunday, Mr Hine stated that forensic child interviewers arrived in Tasmania to assist with interviews with young witnesses. 

He stated, “It’s crucial that we do not pre-empt any outcome before all evidence has been gathered and the investigation’s completed,”
