WATCH: The moment when a fruit vendor in Turkey takes off with an umbrella

Possibly the only instance of a person taking off with an umbrella was in the scene from the film Mary Poppins. Sometimes, however, there is more than a grain of truth in unreal situations.

A video clip captured by a security camera in Osmaniye, Turkey shows fruit vendors trying to hold down an umbrella caught up in strong winds.

One of the men climbed onto the base of the umbrella hoping to hold it down with his weight, but his plan misfired and he ended up taking off, umbrella and all.

It was reported that the man had to jump off when he was about three metres off the ground, with the umbrella continuing to fly high before crashing to the ground, where it ended up hitting an unlucky pedestrian and slightly injuring him.
