A lifeguard’s quick reaction to a child struggling to swim in a crowded wave pool potentially saved the child’s life when no one else seemed to see him unable to stay above the water.
A video posted to YouTube by user Lifeguard Rescue shows the crowded pool, which was full of people floating on inflatable rings. About 10 seconds into the footage, a child slips off of his ring and seems as though he is struggling to keep his head above water.
Are you able to spot the child? It is difficult to see him in the crowded pool, but a lifeguard notices him and immediately jumps into the water to save him.
It is not known where or when the video was taken, but it has more 8.2 million views on YouTube since it was posted June 16. See the footage of the incident below.
