A young girl was rescued after falling into a panda enclosure in southwest China, state media reported on Sunday.

State broadcaster CCTV showed video of a security guard first trying to rescue the girl in red with a stick, then leaning through a gap to hold the girl's hand and pull her out as the pandas were approaching with no apparent attempt to attack.

The incident took place at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding on Saturday, CCTV said. The girl was not injured and the cause of the incident was still under investigation, it added.
