Source| Dust devils are strong whirlwinds that form on the ground and often look like small, skinny tornadoes. Most of the time, they are relatively harmless — but sometimes they gain gather enough speed and velocity to cause damage.
Schoolchildren in the city of Gansu, China, got to experience not one, but three dust devils at a sporting event held at Yuanquan Primary School on Wednesday.
Local media capture the frightening event. One photograph showed a student being lifted into the air by the third whirlwind that hit the area. The student suffered minor head injuries and was taken to the hospital, according to NBC News.
