Before we dive into this one, you should know that the three-year-old girl who was lifted into the air emerged unharmed.

Screams can be heard in the video as the child is lifted high into the air, being swung about wildly by the kite and wind.

Horrified spectators screamed as the girl was catapulted high above them, where she was spun helplessly at the end of the kite's long orange streamer as it soared and swooped in the high wind.

Taiwan News reported the girl was sent to hospital with her mother after the incident. The city's mayor Lin Chih-chien said on his official Facebook page that planned festival activities on Sunday evening were suspended after the incident, and issued an apology. Thankfully, she fell to the ground with only a few minor scratches, amongst a crowd of understandably shocked onlookers.

In 2019 a Chinese man had three fingers sliced off after his kite got caught in strong winds.

"The city government team offers its honest apology to the victim and the public", he said. "We will also investigate responsibility and conduct an in-depth review", the statement said.

"The municipal government team expresses its deepest apology to the party concerned and the public".
