‘I just heard my husband screaming’: Moment father leaps into swimming pool to save his 14-month-old daughter from drowning after she climbs in while no one was watching

  • A 14-month-old baby girl called Bella almost drowned by falling in a pool in Brazil
  • Her dad, Cleyton Alves Pinto, 38, heard her thrashing and jumped in to save her
  • Karlla Araújo, 28, posted video of the incident online to warn other parents 










This is the nightmare moment a 14-month-old baby almost died when she started to drown after climbing into a swimming pool. 

Karlla Araújo, 28, realised her 14-month-old baby, called Bella, was drowning in the family pool in Matrinchã, Goiás, Brazil, when she heard her husband screaming. 

The scare was caught on the family’s CCTV, which Karlla recently shared online.

Karlla said it all happened ‘very fast’.

‘I just heard my husband screaming,’ she told Crescer. 

She said: ‘When I got there, she was calm, not crying, just her heart racing.

‘I believe she didn’t drink much water.’

Karlla said she and her husband Cleyton Alves Pinto, 38, had spent the day by the pool with their two children, Bella and Miguel, 5.

A sudden gale surprised the family and they went inside to shelter from the wind and rain. Karlla changed her daughter’s wet clothes and she rejoined her father, who was sitting on a hammock.

She said Cleyton didn’t realise Bella had returned and so wasn’t paying attention to her movements.

She added he was waiting for the rain to ease before putting a cover on the pool.

Her father, Cleyton Alves Pinto, 38, heard the sound of his child in trouble and leapt from his hammock to save her

In the days after the incident on September 12 Karlla realised her daughter had become terrified of water and even became agitated when being washed in a bath.

She posted the video online to alert other families of the dangers of swimming pools and of always being aware even when risk seems low.

‘God saved us from the worst but may this episode serve as a warning to all parents,’ she said.
