Taiwan is home to something called the International Kite Festival. You can guess what the theme is. The festival is a big hit with families — especially kids because they get to participate in the launches of giant kites. One family will never forget the 2020 International Kite Festival after a three-year-old girl became wrapped up in the tail of a giant kite. As soon as the adults released the kite into the sky, the girl was immediately pulled upward where her body was violently swung around like a rag doll. The blood-curdling screams of the girl’s mother and nearby onlookers can be heard during the terrifying scene. Luckily, the child was able to maintain her grip on the massive kite even as she dangled hundreds of feet above the ground. The kite was soon pulled closer down to the ground where the girl was able to be safely caught after falling a short distance.
