A bird that appeared to be floating after getting stuck on kite string baffled motorists in Malaysia.

Onlooker Hazie Qira took the video in Petaling Jaya City, Selangor State on November 12, showing the bizarre moment the bird hung above a busy highway with its wings outstretched and unmoving.

An unseen force seemed to inexplicably move the stationary bird further up into the sky.

Meanwhile, firefighters below stood on a firetruck and were seen trying to reach the levitating falcon using long poles. Traffic also started building up as the men conducted the rescue operations.

The Selangor Fire and Rescue Office later explained that the bird was caught in a thin kite string not visible to distant onlookers.

They said in a statement: ‘The bird was trapped in a kite string. We received a report, then attempted to rescue the bird.’

The trapped falcon reportedly broke free after several minutes and flew away without issue.
