LYNDHURST, Ohio -- A little girl in Lyndhurst literally got blown away during Wednesday's windstorm in Northeast Ohio.

Surveillance video shows Madison Gardner, 4, walk up the front stairs of her house and open the door. The wind then catches the door -- sweeping both of them out of sight.

Her mom, Brittany Gardner, can be heard gasping before heading to help her daughter.

Luckily, she said, Madison wasn't hurt.

"She is totally OK," said Brittany. "She was scared at first, then was laughing away at it. She held on until I took her off the handle."

She set the video to Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly with Me" and posted it on her Facebook page. It's been shared over 100 times and viewed nearly 6,000 times.

Wind warnings and advisories, and even a travel ban was in effect throughout NE Ohio all day as the high winds swept through the area.

The wind caused power outages, property damage and accidents.
