More details have emerged about the five Tasmanian children killed in Thursday's tragic jumping castle accident.
Tasmania Police on Friday released the names of all five victims of the tragedy at Hillcrest Primary School in Devonport.
Addison Stewart, 11, Zane Mellor, 12, Jye Sheehan, 12, Jalailah Jayne-Maree Jones, 12, and Peter Dodt, 12, were all killed after the jumping castle they were playing in was lifted about 10 metres in the air by a wind gust.
Peter’s aunt Tamara Scott told the Mail Online her nephew dreamed of one day overcoming his ADHD and becoming an astronaut.
She added he shared a special bond with his dad, Andrew.
“He [Andrew] went to the school this morning to collect his school bag — he felt he had to do that, and he just cuddled it and cried,” Ms Scott told the Mail.
Ms Scott also started a GoFundMe page for the family and wrote her nephew was “full of life and adventures”.
Peter’s classmate Addison was remembered as a “sweet kind, old soul” by her aunt, Meg Aherne, while Zane was described as “beautiful, caring and gentle”.
Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine declined to say if the jumping castle had been tethered to the ground at the time.
"That forms part of the investigation, we need to continue our investigation on behalf of the coroner and also with WorkSafe Tasmania," he said.
"We all have a lot of questions."
The gust also picked up several inflatable Zorb balls that some children had been playing with, with Mr Hine understanding the injured children were inside the jumping castle.
Flowers, teddy bears and messages of support have been left outside the school as the tight-knit community comes to grips with the tragedy in the days before Christmas.
Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein was among those to leave flowers.
"Overnight there has been an enormous outpouring of grief," he told reporters.
"As a parent, I cannot understand how the parents of those who have lost children must be feeling.
"But as a parent, I hope they can understand that we are all feeling for you."
