(CNN) - A three-year-old girl is expected to be okay after falling out of a carnival ride.

An official at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo says the little girl crawled out of her seat and tumbled a short distance to the ground from the Techno Jump ride.

Witnesses say the girl's mother got off the ride before it started, leaving the three-year-old with her eight-year-old brother.

The girl suffered a contusion to her head and cuts to her face, but tests show nothing more serious.

Rodeo officials neither the ride or ride operator were at fault.

They say the girl met the ride's height and weight requirements.
