Video captures 3yo girl being flung sky high in kite festival accident

A three-year-old girl who was filmed in a terrifying kite accident in Taiwan has not suffered any injuries, media reports say.

The child was filmed being lifted dozens of metres into the air after she was caught in the strings of a kite as it was released on a gusty day.

The unidentified girl was taking part in a kite festival on Sunday in the seaside town of Nanlioao when she was caught up by a giant, long-tailed orange kite.

Video shot at the scene showed her twisting several times above a crowd of adults who struggled to pull the kite back to earth.

The video ends with the tail of the kite relatively slowly dropping to the ground as those people nearby rush to help the girl.

News reports said the girl was frightened but suffered no physical injuries in the incident.
