A huge orange kite was scheduled to take off last Sunday at four o'clock in the afternoon to launch candies and sweets to those attending a kite festival in northern Taiwan.

What was not expected is that the kite strings would wrap around the neck of a three-year-old girl seconds before taking off.

The minor, who came with her parents to the event, was shaken and lifted into the air for half a minute, due to the strong gusts of wind that hit the area.

After tense moments and between screams, the wind stopped long enough for the girl's weight to slowly bring the kite down towards the crowd, who quickly organized to rescue her and prevent her from rising again.

The little girl suffered burns to her face and neck from the rubbing of the ropes, and was transferred to a nearby hospital, although fortunately she returned home that same day.

The accident caused the automatic cancellation of the festival, which had already been developing with difficulties due to the enormous force with which the wind was blowing.

Lin Chih-chien, Mayor of Hsinchu, the town where the event was held, publicly apologized for the accident and the authorities have already announced new security measures for future events of this type.
