Surveillance video captured the horrific moments a 12-year-old boy became trapped in a pool drain at a resort in SC. Skursky says he knew the boy had been under water too long and knew he needed oxygen so he dove under water and continued to breathe in the boy's mouth until extra help arrived.

Dramatic CCTV footage from March 19 at the Avista Resort's "lazy river" pool in California was released today and shows the moment two friends playing turns to panic.

The incident happened back in March at a resort near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

After diving down to the hole again and again his leg gets stuck. Emergency medical technicians were then able to free the boy and get him to the side of the pool.

The first officer to respond to the scene can be seen taking off her gun and then sitting down to untie both of her shoes before jumping into the water. Adults rush into the river to save the boy but they can't get him out either.

Only after the arrival of two police officers do they finally manage to get him out of the water to immediately start performing CPR.

The Sun News spoke with Horry County Fire Rescue Chief Joseph Tanner, who said that the boy's life was saved only due to the unbelievable actions of Shaun Skursky, the responding police, and everyone else who stepped in to help.

Police confirm the boy is alive, but are not sharing any further details on his condition.

Another police report said the boy's leg was sucked into the six-inch suction line after a 3ft by 3ft grate covering it was removed, according to WMBF.
