A TERRIFYING video shows how easy it is to miss a child getting into trouble in a busy swimming pool.

Hardly anyone notices as the youngster loses his grip on an inflatable ring and quickly finds himself out of his depth.

The boy starts waving to attract attention but then slips under the surface.

Fortunately an eagle-eyed lifeguard spots the danger and leaps into action.

Within moments he is at the boy’s side and helps him safely to the pool’s edge.

The video was posted on YouTube in 2018 by Lifeguard Rescue, and is believed to have been filmed in the US.

Another video reveals a separate incident at the same pool.

According to the Royal Life Saving Society UK, around 400 people needlessly drown every year in Britain and thousands more suffer injury, some life changing, through near-drowning experiences.

Nearly 60 of these are children and young people.

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

But they note accidents tend to occur more often on holiday and warn people to be vigilant when using swimming pools.
