A teenage lifeguard has spoken of the heart-stopping moment he was forced to step in and save a four-year-old girl’s life after hearing her mother frantically shouting.<br />
<br />
Jamie Hannaford, 19, was working on the East Beach at West Bay in Dorset when the dramatic scene unfolded.<br />
<br />
He had spent the afternoon at the water’s edge advising swimmers near an area of the beach that is red flagged – meaning people should not enter the water there.<br />
<br />
On his way back, around 100ft from the red flag, he heard a mother shouting for her son to help his little sister who was struggling.
