A 3-year-old girl at a Taiwan kite festival became entangled in the tail of a giant kite and survived a terrifying "ride" after being swept more than 100 feet in the air.

The video footage is incredible and frightening. You can hear the horrified spectators screaming as the girl was flying above them:

According to The Telegraph the girl was "spun helplessly at the end of the kite's long orange streamer as it soared and swooped in the high wind… it took some 30 seconds before she was pulled back to the ground by members of the crowd as the kite was brought back under control."

And then you had people like this just not even trying to help:

A Hsinchu city government official told media that a sudden gust of wind at the site, which is know for its strong winds, caused the kite's tail to wrap around the child's waist, local news reports said she amazingly only suffered very minor injuries (!!!).
