Two-year old Ani was in a small bamboo sock when she fell in the garden of her home in the city of Gungmu.
“The parents went outside and looked for help,” a local told the Xinhua news agency.
“But they couldn’t find the baby and she was dead,” she said.
“It’s a tragedy that a child has died while playing in a garden,” she added.
The toddler was not wearing a special safety harness, but was in her first month.
Ani’s father said he was not worried about his daughter’s safety.
“I know she has a lot of love and respect for the land,” he said.
A similar incident occurred in China in May 2016, when a girl was playing with a bamboo stroller when a tree branch fell on her.
The girl’s father told state media at the time that he did not think the accident was related to the stroller.
In 2016, a toddler was accidentally run over and killed in a playground in China.
