A 5-year-old girl trapped in a washing machine at a Texas laundromat for several minutes has been hospitalized but is expected to survive.

Pasadena police say the child "was tumbling pretty fast" Tuesday before a customer noticed at Le's Washateria laundromat, The Associated Press reported.

The girl was airlifted to a Houston hospital.

Police could not say how the girl became trapped inside the washing machine nor how it was started. Police say the manager told a woman who had tried to use the machine earlier that it wasn't working correctly and returned her money.

The laundromat owner says an employee used circuit breakers to stop the machine.

It's unclear who was watching the child. Police are investigating.
