The toddler was participating in a kite festival in the coastal town of Nanlioao when she became entangled in the strings of a giant, long-tailed orange kite.
Footage shot of the ensuing events shows the young child twisting several times some metres above a crowd of adults who struggled to pull the kite back down to earth without harming the girl.
News reports from local media outlets say that the young girl was extremely frightened after the incident, but was brought back to earth unharmed.
