Van Minh Dat, aged five, had been helping his mother out at her drinks stall at the Dong Dieu kite field in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, when his legs became tangled in the string of a giant kite and he was dragged into the air

The shocking clip shows five-year-old Van Minh Dat being dragged into the sky by his legs, which became tangled in the giant kite?s ropes, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on Sunday.

Spectators can be heard screaming in terror as people desperately try to pull the kite back down.

But after his rapid 12-second ascent, Dat tragically falls to the ground.

The boy initially survived the fall but later died in hospital from his injuries, Britain?s Mirror reports.

The Mirror, citing local newspaper Nguoi Lao Dong, said Dat?s parents had been selling drinks to kite fliers preparing for a festival organised by the Saigon Kite Club.

The boy reportedly managed to get under the 18 metre wide kite without anyone noticing.
