Viral video shows Lyndhurst girl swept off her feet by strong winds

LYNDHURST, Ohio - A lot of people are still feeling the effects from our incredibly windy Wednesday.

Thousands are still without power and we've seen a lot of property damage.

But today video is going viral of the wind giving a local mom a bit of a scare as her little girl went flying!

Four-year-old Madison Gardner and her mom, Brittany, had just arrived home in Lyndhurst Wednesday afternoon. 

"I'm unloading the car and Madison went to go inside like everyday and grabbed the door," Brittany told News 5. 

Little Madison was barely able to reach the handle but she grabbed it. And, in one big blast of wind, she was airborne! 

"So I run to her, see her pinned against the siding and the glass door," Brittany said. "And I had to unlatch her from the handle and took her inside. She was scared, kind of embarrassed we were laughing at her. Then showed her the video and she was laughing at it too."

As she gets older, Madison might not remember the details of the day she flew but the proof is in the pictures. 

"I'll be showing it to her, for sure," Brittany said.
