Chilling footage shows another child calling for an adult to help after seeing the boy struggling beneath the water.

Realising what has happened, the boy’s uncle then runs across the lawn and jumps into the raised pool to rescue him.

The toddler was rushed to hospital after the terrifying accident, which happened at a house in Greenville, South Carolina at the weekend.

Despite the length of time the boy spent underwater, he escaped any serious injuries, reports the Metro.

His family, who asked not to be named, shared the video with WYFF to warn families of the dangers of unattended pools during the summer months.
