MI boy trapped underwater for 8 minutes in resort pool

Police said the boy survived his ordeal but didn't reveal any further details about his condition

Video shows the frantic rescue of a 12-year-old-boy trapped underwater for nine minutes at a Myrtle Beach resort, The Myrtle Beach Sun News reports.

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

Incredibly, the boy survived his ordeal - thanks to a man who kept him alive by performing underwater mouth-to-mouth until emergency services arrived, ABC15 reports. The boy was swimming down to explore the hole but his leg became stuck. The other boy tried to pull him out and then yelled for help after about 90 seconds, causing a woman to run over.

In terrifying security camera footage, two friends of the boy can be seen going under water with mouthfuls of air to breathe into their friend's mouth. Adults rush into the river to save the boy but they can't get him out either.

The pair can be seen taking turns diving underwater and eventually removing the safety grate covering the suction pump.

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

Police say at least one of the men in the river knew how to give underwater mouth-to-mouth aid, keeping the boy clinging to life for 9 minutes.

Police are not releasing more information on the boy's condition, only that he is alive. It is not clear whether the boy removed the grate himself.
