Recently released video footage shows a man in Turkey being carried in to the air by a runaway patio umbrella.
The bizarre incident, which occurred in southern Turkey's Osmaniye province, saw a group of men grab on to the base of a large parasol in an effort to stop it from being carried away by the wind.
As it started to ascend in to the sky, one of the men jumped on to the base in an attempt to use his weight to keep it from lifting off, but failed spectacularly as it continued to fly upwards regardless.
Fortunately though, he was able to disembark before the parasol got too high.
"I'm fine actually,", he told reporters. "After I realized the umbrella was going to keep going up, I jumped off. I think I rose 3 or 4 meters."
In an unlucky twist however, the parasol ended up injuring someone else when it landed on top of them. The unfortunate victim was knocked out cold and suffered a broken foot and ribs.
