The moment GIRL, 3, was THROWN from a moving U.S. FUNFAIR RIDE
- Child sustained concussion and bruising after falling from the contraption
- Rodeo organisers first claimed she tried to climb out of the ride's car
- However footage shows she slipped under at least one safety restraint
A shocking video has emerged showing the moment a three-year-old girl was hurled from a fairground ride after slipping under the restraining bar.
The child is shown with her feet in the air seconds before flying off the Techno Jump carnival ride at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in Texas, the footage has revealed.
It appears that the little girl slipped under at least one safety restraint on the ride, raising questions over how she came to fall off it.
The child suffered concussion and bruising to her face and head after she was thrown between from the moving contraption between six and eight feet above the ground.
The incident was caught on camera by chance as a reveller filmed other thrill-seekers on the ride, which is why the girl's fall is only partially visible from the edge of the frame.
