The boy begins waving to attract attention, but then slips beneath the surface.

Luckily, an eagle-eyed lifeguard recognizes the danger and jumps into action.

Within moments he is at the boy’s side, helping him safely to the edge of the pool.

The video was posted to YouTube by Lifeguard Rescue in 2018 and is believed to have been filmed in the United States.

Another video shows a separate incident in the same pool.

According to the Royal Life Saving Society UK, around 400 people drown needlessly in the UK every year and thousands more suffer life-changing injuries from near-drowning.

Almost 60 of them are children and young people.

Drowning is the third leading cause of accidental death in children in the UK, the charity says.

However, they warn that accidents are more common when on holiday and warn people to be vigilant at swimming pools.

Many people would not even have realized that the victim was in distress
