  • Hi everyone! Welcome back on my channel.

  • My name is charlotte and the news that I want to share with you today is quite terrifying.

  • This news quickly spread around the world like wildfire.

  • I have seen it in all kind of newspapers: in the Belgian one, the Dutch one, the French one, the Italian one

  • and English-speaking newspapers show it as well.

  • I think it is safe to say that this news spread worldwide.

  • The news is about a kite festival in Hsinchu that turned wrong when a little girl got caught up in a kite and got thrown into the air.

  • Super high! If you see the images it is terrifying because you don't know how she will land.

  • You see her spinning around and going up

  • I have to say, my heart skipped a beat when I watched the video.

  • I thought this could only end wrongly. But luckily, what happened was:

  • When the little girl (she was 3 years old if I remember correctly) … When the staff tried to take the kite back down,

  • Luckily, many of the bystanders (the people who were watching) quickly ran to get her and they could catch her while she was landing.

  • I looked it up online and I found that the girl was almost totally unharmed.

  • She might have had a few scratches on her neck and face if I remember it correctly, but other than that she was totally fine.

  • That is truly a miracle in my opinion! When you watch those images, you just thinkthis can't end well…”.

  • But it did end well, luckily! I think the festival was completely stopped after this very scary event.

  • I can imagine that everybody who was there must have been so shocked. Maybe not in the mood to have a festival anymore.

  • I also think that there will be people who will be held accountable because the security was not high enough.

  • How could a little girl of 3 years old run into the strings of a kite. That should definitely not happen in such a big international festival.

  • I think that next year, before they organize the next international kite-festival, they will definitely take some stricter security-measures.

  • I am convinced.

  • The reason why I think this article spread around the world so fast was

  • It is just very terrifying when you see the images, they are very shocking. It is something I never saw before.

  • Honestly, I didn't even know that a kite was that strong. It's a big kite. I saw in the video that it's a huge, long, orange kite

  • I guess it has a lot of power, especially if the wind is strong like it was that day.

  • They are crazy images, crazy footage. I think that's why it is very famous.

  • I think that something that also makes the story so popular is that it ended well.

  • I think the video would not have been shared that much if something had happened to the little girl. Thank god nothing happened to her.

  • I can't wrap my mind around the fact that she was almost completely unharmed while she went that high with a kite.

  • I think people are also enjoying the videoNotenjoying”, that's the wrong word

  • They can watch the video since it has a happy ending. Otherwise, it would definitely not have been shared as much by everyone.

  • That would be too shocking to watch, if it had a bad ending.

  • That was the news I had for you today.

  • I think that this news is also popular in Taiwan. This festival is very popular, right?

  • I think it is very famous in Taiwan and around the world.

  • All I can say about this news is that I am so relieved that the girl has nothing too serious.

  • I hope everybody recovered from the shock, especially the mother who was with her at the festival.

  • I can't even start to imagine how scared she must have been.

  • I hope that next year, or next time there will be a festival, the security measures will be better.

  • The festival should be child-proof!

  • Let me know what you think about the article!

  • Have you watched the video? Can you even watch it? Cause I think it is pretty shocking.

  • I had trouble watching it. Let me know in the comments down below.

  • Thank you so much for watching!

  • Today's codeword is….

  • I have one!

  • Let's saylightbulb”. You can't see it from where you are, but I just got a new light. I upgraded my light.

  • I could only film during daytime. I didn't have any professional light to film my videos.

  • Right now, the days are getting shorter and my work is so busyIt is September and I have a job in the field of education, so we are overloaded right now.

  • It is hard to find a combination for filming videos and needing daylight.

  • I am super relieved that I can finally film videos while the sun went down already. So let's saylightbulb”.

  • Wait, I'll show you. Let me turn you around.

  • I don't know if that is clear but anyway, it looks professional and I am very happy about the light.

  • Thank you so much for watching, I hope to see you again very soon in a new video.

  • By the way, it is my birthday this weekend! That's just a random fact, I didn't know why I told you that

  • I got some super cool news as well. I was contacted by the China Post, an English-speaking Taiwanese newspaper.

  • They want to write a little article about me. It is supposed to come out very soon.

  • Maybe next time I make a video, I can check out some news about myself? Who knows

  • I think that is the best birthday present I could get. I am super happy!

  • I also wanted to say an extrathank youto my 4 very first Patreon members.
