Many people are trained in pool safety, but it takes a certain kind of level-headed skill to be able to spot a swimmer in trouble in a crowded pool. This amazing video captures one such moment, the split-second reactions of a lifeguard as he spots a swimmer in difficulty in a wavepool, and brings her to safety, even while the struggling girl’s fellow swimmers remain unaware she’s in trouble.

According to the lifeguard, the girl had fallen out of the tube she was playing on in the wavepool.

The video illustrates just how easily even a good swimmer can get into difficulties, something that parents should always keep in mind when their kids are playing in or around the pool.

Watch this breath-taking rescue video:
