An unbelievable amount of responsibility is required.

If we take our eyes off them for just one second...

All hell could break loose!

Not only are children mischievous...

They're also curious about anything and everything, which often results in them wandering away from their parents when they're out and about and getting themselves into a lot of trouble.

We've all made some disastarous mistakes as kids, right?

But one child recently made a mistake so serious, it almost cost her her life.

It all happened at a festival in the seaside town of Nanlioao in Taiwan on Sunday...

Hundreds of the festival-goers were holding majestic kites and flags in the air - which has lead to the assumption that the festival was some sort of kite celebration festival.

It looked like a wonderful day...

But footage has emerged of a 3-year-old girl getting tangled in one of the giant kites which instantly soured the mood of surrounding festival-goers.

The clip begins showing 3 people holding a very long kite...

And the crowd sound eager for the kite to be released.

It appeared to be a very windy day...

And the kite is seen flapping around uncontrollably in the hands of those about to release it.

The kite is eventually released in front of a large, excitable crowd...

But as it soars into the sky, the crowd suddenly begins to scream.

A 3-year-old girl had somehow gotten attached to the tail of the kite...

And it dragged the poor little girl up into the air with it, throwing her around like a helpless ragdoll.

It is utterly horrifying to watch...

And as the crowd continues to scream (whilst filming the ordeal, might I add), the little girl is tugged higher and higher into the air.

After a couple of excruciating seconds, the flag thankfully descends back to earth...

And the crowd are seen running after where the flag is dragging the little girl.

She is finally pulled down into the crowd of worried adults...

And miraculously, the New York Post reported that she left without any serious injuries, suffering only mild scratches to her face and neck.

It is still unknown as to how the girl was caught up in the kite...

But all we can do is be grateful that she didn't fall from the height she was dragged to... because that would have been disastrous.

Since the shocking video was anonymously posted online, it has gone viral...

And people all around the world have been left both horrified and relieved that the little girl is alive and well.
