Little Girl Dragged Into The Air By Giant Kite

A three-year-old girl was lifted into the sky while holding on to a kite.

The youngster was at a kite festival in Nanlioao, Taiwan, when a gust of wind pulled her into the air as she held onto a large orange kite.

Heart-stopping footage shows the girl being thrown around while a crowd of adults stand below attempting to reach up and grab her.

According to reports, the girl wasn't seriously hurt in the incident, which lasted around 30 seconds before she was safely back on land.

The Hsinchu City Government suspended the festival and have promised to launch a safety review, Taiwan English News reports.

Earlier this week, another little girl found herself in an equally terrifying situation after the inflatable unicorn she was sat on floated out to sea.

The four-year-old had been at the beach in the Greek town of Antirrio in the Gulf of Corith with her family when a powerful current carried her away - she was eventually rescued about half a mile from the shore by a ferry.

Shocking footage showed the girl calmly sat on the inflatable, while the ferry approached, but the captain who rescued her said that wasn't the case.

Captain Grigoris Karnes told Protothema: "The little one was not calm. She was frozen from her fear because the current was very strong."

Speaking to the Greek City Times he said: "I put the ship in such a position so as not to affect the small inflatable. I placed it in such a way that the ship was not affected by ripples, because if the inflatable sank we would have serious problems.

"We approached it slowly and we were able to rescue the child."

The heroic captain said as he approached the little girl she screamed so he and his crew made funny faces and attempted to crack jokes to try and calm her down.

He added: "Fortunately, everything went well."

The girl was then returned to her distraught parents, who had already raised the alarm with port authorities.
