With QPR leading 1-0 at Loftus Road, Touré attempted to restore parity with a strong, curling effort but instead of hitting the target, the midfielder's shot flew past the goal and smacked a young girl in the head.
The poor little girl looked as if she had no idea what happened, with television footage showing her head being rocked back and her hands helplessly sprawled in the air.
Thankfully, QPR have confirmed that she is suffering no ill-effects and that she'll have some souvenirs to remember an eventful day by.
Touré also tweeted his relief that the youngster would be okay.
Relieved to hear the girl my shot hit is ok. I was very worried. Also want to thank the City fans who traveled to support us today.— Yaya Touré (@YayaToure) November 8, 2014
Just spoke to the lovely Chloe and her dad on the phone. So glad she is ok.— Yaya Touré (@YayaToure) November 8, 2014
