WATCH: 3-year-old girl caught in kite soars above ground

A 3-year-old girl was unexpectedly lifted many feet into the air in a freak accident at a Taiwanese kite festival.

The little girl became caught in the strings of a long-tailed kite Sunday in the coastal town of Nanlioao, The Associated Press reported.

Video shows the child twisted several times around the kite while in the air before drifting back toward the ground. Panicked onlookers screamed in fear.

The child was not injured, according to the AP.
