TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A three-year-old girl was pulled violently into the sky by a large kite after a gust of strong winds hit the Nanliao Harbor of Hsinchu City on Sunday (Aug. 30).

The 2020 International Kite Festival kicked off this weekend in Hsinchu, a northeastern region famous for its high winds. The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon when a kite with a long strip was accidentally set flying by a sudden gust.

A three-year-old girl surnamed Lin, whose stomach had somehow been entangled with one end of the strip, was instantly pulled into the sky with the kite by the winds.

Based on the footage shared on social media, the girl appears to have swung violently in the sky for several seconds before the kite was pulled down by someone on the ground. A group of people who had been waiting then managed to catch the girl when she fell, and the scene was filled with screaming and yelling.    [FULL  STORY]
