The tail of the kite somehow got wrapped around the child as the wind picked up and threw her hundreds of feet in to the air.

We have been using kites often this summer. Our two older boys, hank and teddy, have been trying to master the art of getting them to soar on the wind. But just getting the kite to come off the grass when they run and pull them is a chore.

This video is hard to watch. But the people on the ground were quick to grab the kite and pull it back getting the child back to the ground safely. I can't even imagine the panic and fear the parents must have gone through just watching this happen. Talk about a freak accident! This has to be one of the craziest of all time!
