Firefighters in China's Shangdong Province saw through a washing machine to free a three-year-old girl who had climbed inside.

The mother protected her as the rescuers sawed through the plastic and metal surrounding the three-year-old.

Chinese television said the firefighters distracted the girl with candies as they pried her free. Her mother says she often plays in the washing machine - but hopefully not any more.
