Man Lifted Into the Air by High Winds in Turkey

A man trying to secure a huge patio-style cafe umbrella during high winds on a street in Turkey got more than he bargained for - after it lifted him 13ft (4m) off the ground as it blew away.

Footage shows two men sitting at a small table in the southern province of Osmaniye when the awning starts flapping wildly.

As they rush over to secure the umbrella, which is moving around dangerously on a wheeled platform, a third man - Sadik Kocadalli - joins in to help them.
The trio place their feet on the base - but then the whole apparatus suddenly takes off.

While the other two men step back onto the ground, Mr Kocadilli grips on to the umbrella pole for dear life as he disappears - up and away from view.

He was lifted about 13ft before he jumped off - and miraculously survived the ordeal without any injuries.
