Go Fly A Kite?! Deadly Kite Strings Slit Throats Of 3


A man and two children are dead in India after a kite flying tradition on Independence Day went horribly wrong. Two children, aged 3 and 4, had their throats slit by kite strings covered with powdered glass or metal—a coating used to cut down competitors’ kites—while riding with their heads out of car sunroofs in separate incidents in Delhi on Monday, reports the BBC. A 22-year-old motorcyclist suffered a fatal fall when he became entangled in a string, per the Indian Express, while a police officer was also injured. The Delhi government has since banned the sale of the sharp strings.


Which themselves aren’t a really sporting thing to put on kites. The only reason they exist in the first place is to cut down other kites. What kind of monster do you need to be to cut down someone’s kite? Also, it might kill you or your kid. Is it really worth it?

What were they doing standing in an open sunroof? And why were there no Indian kite fliers during the filming of Rebecca Black’s video?
