The man seen approaching the pool towards the end of the clip is Lori's father, who was alerted to the incident by the barking of the family dogs.

A 10-year-old boy displayed great resolve and strength in saving the life of his mother who suffered a seizure in a swimming pool.

A surveillance camera caught the moment Gavin Keeney jumped into the pool to save his drowning mother. The incident took place at their home in Oklahoma.

The footage shows the woman struggling to breathe and stay afloat as the 10-year-old pulled her towards the ladder on the edge.

Gavin managed to keep his mother's face above the surface of the water for close to a minute until another person arrived to offer help.

Sharing the footage on Facebook, the mother praised her son for saving her life.

Lori Keeney explained that her son had just gotten out of the pool and was on the porch when she suffered the seizure.

“Gavin had just got out of the pool and was on the porch and that's when he heard me. He jumped in...the dog even tried to get in..he gets me over to the ladder and then my Dad runs in . I'm okay, I took in just a little water we think before Gavin got me. I can't believe I just said that. I can't believe I'm typing this. I CAN believe what I saw in Gavin, my little hero. I just can't believe he HAD to do it and that's what breaks my heart. Thank you God for putting this wonderful little human into my life," Lori Keeny wrote on Facebook.

The clip has now collected over 11,000 views and close to 400 reactions. Many users praised the boy for reacting quickly but staying calm during the emergency.

The man seen approaching the pool towards the end of the clip is Lori's father, who was alerted to the incident by the barking of the family dogs.

Remarkably, this is the second time in over a year that the 10-year-old has helped save his mother's life.

Last time, he successfully administered the Heimlich manoeuvre when she was choking on food.
