Parents Horrified As They See Their Daughter's Throat Cut Open - Notice The Kites

It seems like nothing is safe anymore, not even simple kite strings. There's a new type of string on the market that is being used by some kite fliers in India. Sadly, the strings are dangerous and they're killing people. Even though they're outlawed, some kite-fliers continue to use them.

Three people in India are dead after having their throats slit open by a kite string. Two of them were young children. Harry Goyal, 4, and his sister Saanchi, 3, had their heads out of the sunroof of a car when they encountered the sharp string that killed them both.

Zafar Khan, 22, was riding home on his motorbike. A kite string killed him as well.

The glass-coated strings became popular with serious kite-fliers. The sharp strings were intended to cut the strings of their competitor’s kites, preventing any tangling. Unfortunately, the strings are sharp enough to cut human flesh.

This is not the first incident in which these kite strings have killed people. In 2015, a five-year-old boy died, and in 2014, a five-year-old girl died. Hundreds have been maimed by them.

In addition to human casualties, thousands of birds are killed or injured each year by these sharp strings.

Both the use and manufacturing of the strings have been outlawed in India's capitol, and having them can result in a sentence of up to five years, as well as a fine of around $1,500. You’d think just the knowledge that your kite string could kill someone would be enough of a deterrent.
