CCTV Captures The Moment Strong Winds Lift A Man Metres Off The Ground

A hair-raising moment captured on CCTV showed a man being lifted into the air as he tried to prevent a large outdoor umbrella from falling over.

The incident happened at a wholesale market hall in the southern Turkish city of Osmaniye on Monday.

Video released by a local grocery man Ismet Icoz shows three men, including Icoz himself, running to secure the parasol as strong winds move it and one of them, Sadik Kocadalli, is blown into the air after stepping on the base of the canopy.
