DC National Zoo panda cub dies

NBC Washington:

The National Zoo in Washington, DC, says the giant panda cub born last Sunday has died.

"Panda keepers and volunteers heard a distress vocalization from the mother, Mei Xiang, at 9:17 a.m. and notified the veterinarian staff immediately," a statement from the zoo, issued late Sunday morning, says. "Veterinarians immediately performed CPR and other life-saving measures but the cub did not respond."
