NICK EICHER, HOST: Alright, this is quite the sight of a tyke flying a kite.
Well, not exactly. You look at the video and it shows the opposite. It’s a kite flying a tyke.
And it’s a little scary.
You can hear the whipping of the wind on the cell-phone video and the crowd of people reacting.
Literally, a wind gust wrapped the tail of a kite around a three-year-old girl. Then lifted the child five stories into the air. Not even kidding.
You’ve got to see it. It’s on WORLD Watch this morning.
This happened near Taipei at a kite-flying festival.
The little girl is upright the whole way—feet dangling. She’s not flailing or anything, like she’s walking on air. Someone whipped out a cellphone and recorded five full seconds of the flight.
Then she plunges and several adults catch her and break the fall.
She walks away with just a few minor cuts and a story to tell for the rest of her life.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
