Family Saved From Drowning: Amazing Video

A family of five have been dramatically pulled to safety from the sea in Brazil.

Lifesaver Marcelo dos Santos recorded the whole rescue through his headcam.

The group was swimming off White Beach, Bertioga, near Sao Paulo, when they found themselves floundering in deep water.

The rescuer - who works for the region's fire department - jumped onto his jet ski and rushed out to sea to help them.

Mr dos Santos picked up three members of the family first and took them on the craft back to the beach.

He returned to pick up the remaining pair, leaving them safely with their relieved loved ones.
