(Scroll down for video) A young girl was rushed to a hospital after customers at laundromat found her spinning inside a washing machine, rescue workers in Texas said.

Pasadena Police said that the 5-year-old girl was spinning fast for several minutes on Tuesday, before one customer noticed her inside and stopped the machine.

The girl was airlifted to the hospital, where doctors expect her to survive.

The manager of the laundromat said that a woman had tried to use the machine before the girl was found and she reported that it was not working properly. She asked for a refund and left.

According to the police investigation, the girl was playing with her friend when she decided to climb into the machine.

At some point, her friend locked the door, and the machine started spinning at high speeds. Police said that they will not file any charges.
