You didn't say what the kids were doing when they went over the bars. It's an off-road machine. It's kid-sized, like a regular motorcycle would be to grownup me. They are riding it off-road. Whenever I was riding my bikes in the dirt, my behind was seldom on the seat. Unless I was crotching the gas tank to get my inside foot out beside the front axle (Nike 3rd wheel) in a powerslide, I was standing on the pegs. Locking the rear wheel up would definitely throw me over the handlebars if I wasn't planning it myself, so something like a chain jumping, binding for a second, and then getting snatched back out by the force could easily toss a 75 lb. kid over the bars if they're not sitting down.
