THIS is the heartbreaking moment a little girl drowns in a swimming pool after her rubber ring flipped over while oblivious adults are nearby.
The tragic accident happened at the children’s swimming pool in Jieyang City, located in Guangdong Province in Southeastern China.
The four-year-old girl was sitting in a rubber swimming ring when it tipped upside down forcing the top half of her body to be submerged in water.
Distressing CCTV footage caught the horrifying moment the child began kicking her legs feverishly trying to right the swimming ring.
While the girl drowns in the pool, a woman is nearby eating food completely unaware while another is speaking to a child.
In the video, the woman in the black dress then takes her child over to the pool and fails again to notice the little girl drowning.
She drops off her child into the pool and then exits the room.
The adult who was eating turns around again but notices nothing before she walks away.
The woman eating also turns round but again notices nothing, and then walks away.
The new kid in the pool spots that something is not right but apparently fails to raise the attention of the adults nearby.
It was later confirmed by officials that the girl who was left upside down in the water had died.
Local police confirmed that the child died in the swimming pool, but did not comment on the identities of the two women or whether they were staff or relatives of the child who died.
