Shocking video from a kite festival in Taiwan shows a three-year old girl getting tangled in a kite and lifted high above the ground.
The video shot last Sunday (August 30th 2020) shows kite enthusiasts struggling to get a large orange kite airborne. They cheer when it takes off but their cheers soon turn to horror when they realise a little girl has got caught in the kite’s tail.
The girl reached a height of 100ft and was thrown around for almost a minue before she grabbed and brough back down t earth.
Remarkably, the girl was not seriously hurt . According to Taiwan News, the poor girl – who is identified by the surname Lin — was shocked but only suffered mild scratches to her face and neck.
The 2020 International Kite Festival at Hsinchu’s Nanliao Harbor, was immediately shut down following the accident.
