It was a windy day Wednesday in Lyndhurst Ohio, but that wasn’t going to stop 4-year-old Madison Gardner from opening the door to her house to go inside. It did, however, prevent her from actually reaching her ultimate destination.

That’s because a wind gust at the inopportune time sent her flying while she was still holding onto the door handle, not unlike Tom Cruise in a Mission Impossible movie.

Check out her impressive door-holding strength in the surveillance video below. And listen carefully to the song softly playing in the background.

According to her mom, Brittany Gardner, Madison was scared when she took off like she was an extra in Twister, but then began laughing. Even more impressive was this nugget of info about the future stuntwoman.

“She held on,” Brittany told Fox 8, “until I took her off the handle.”
