WATCH: Child nearly drowns -- caught on CCTV

A horrifying reminder to keep an eye on children in and near water this summer after a CCTV video has gone viral showing a young boy drowning in a crowded swimming pool.

The incident occurred in Helsinki, Finland, while the boy was left alone in the pool. He struggled to get air for minutes while no one paid attention.

Thankfully the child was resuscitated after a woman finally noticed his body floating on the surface. He did not suffer any permanent harm.
