They alerted rescuers, who then performed CPR after the girl stopped breathing.

Paramedics were eventually called to the Adventure World theme park in Lake Bibra.

The young girl eventually regained consciousness and was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Adventure World chief executive Andrew Sharry thanked the two guests for playing a vital role in saving her life, according to West Australian.

He said: “Earlier this afternoon, an unattended five-year-old girl was taken out of the main pool by two of her closest guests.

“Our lifeguards checked vitals and started CPR immediately. Our First Response Team arrived and provided further assistance.

“The girl reacted momentarily and then was stable until the ambulance arrived.”

He added: “Our thoughts are with the young girl and her family.

“We have reached out to the parents to offer our support.”

The Australian girl was later transferred to Perth Children’s Hospital and is known to be in a stable condition.

One witness wrote on social media: “A young girl, she was helped and fortunately taken to the hospital on a ventilator.

“The lifeguards and members of the public did a fantastic job. It was a horrible sight.”

According to amusement park regulations, children under the age of 12 must be supervised at all times by a guardian.

Hundreds of children and their families were at the popular park when the incident happened.

Adventure World remains open to the public following the incident.
