I'm confused. You don't mean both tires went flat at once, I hope?
It sounds like a tire blew off the rim, and if that's the case, it either wasn't seated right, or it didn't fit right at all. I would be cautious about that tire, or maybe that tire-rim combination.
I don't use latex tubes, just because I'm a cheapskate. But what you describe can't be blamed on the tube. When a high pressure tire comes off the rim, the damage to the tube will usually be catastrophic
