A video on Twitter is spreading like wildfire. In the dramatic video, a man is being swept away by a kite. Yes, it’s true. While trying to fly a man-size kite that was tied to jute ropes, he lost control when unexpected heavy gusts of wind hit the scene. The kite unexpectedly picked up speed and next thing he knew, he was in the air.
The event left everyone shocked. As the man holds on to the rope, dangling in the air, his friends on the ground shout for help and guide him in their local language. Some seconds later, as the rope comes down, he lets it go and takes a fall. In the background, there is a lot of noise and one can sense the commotion while a person rushes to help him. The caption of the video says that the man escaped with minor injuries.

There are news reports where the man explained the situation. He said he was swept away by the kite since he did not realise that his team members standing behind him had let off the rope attached to the kite. Once he was in the air, he told media, that he held on to the rope till he could. Once his hands became numb, he let it go.
The bizarre video was first posted by Sri Lankan social media portals and a week later, now, it has shocked people from across the world. The video is said to be shot in the Jaffna area of Sri Lanka.
