Child nearly drowns while adults swim nearby

This shocking CCTV footage taken in a swimming pool in China shows the nerve wrecking moment a child is seen getting into difficulties in a pool, before being dramatically rescued.

People are seen swimming by the distressed boy and not reacting for a number of minutes before a lifeguard jumps in to bring him to safety. 

This highlights the danger of children swimming on their own and how quickly a child can drown, even as adults swim nearby.
