A five-year-old girl escaped relatively unscathed after the trampoline she was playing on was swept on to the roof of a house by a tornado.
The girl had been playing on the trampoline with two other children in Banzkow, northern Germany, when a tornado suddenly swept through the garden.Two of the children were pulled free by their grandmother but the girl was still tangled in the apparatus when it was blown on to the roof of the house.
But although the trampoline fell back down, the girl remained on the roof until she was rescued by her grandfather, remarkably just suffering a few cuts and bruises.

A five-year-old girl incredibly survived being thrown onto the roof of a house in a trampoline after it was ripped off the ground and tossed into the air by a tornado. The girl had been playing on the trampoline that was surrounded by a safety net with two other children in Banzkow, a municipality in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, in northern Germany. But according to emergency services a tornado had then suddenly swept through the garden, ripping the trampoline from its attachments. The grandmother of the children rushed to pull two of them from the apparatus but was unable to rescue the five-year-old, who was swept up on to the roof by the wind along with the trampoline. The trampoline crashed to the floor again but the child stayed on the roof and managed to escape the near-disaster with only a few cuts and bruises. Her grandfather was then able to rescue her with a ladder. Nearby, firemen said that the wind also managed to toss a paddling pool in the air before dumping it some 800 metres (2,624 feet) away.
