The City of Baytown released a statement saying in part that while two people were coming down the slide together "...their inflatable raft veered to the side and collided with a divider, causing the raft to turn over and one of the riders to fall out of the slide."

The child suffered minor scratches. She was checked out by EMS, but didn't require an ambulance ride to the hospital.
