A heroic dad was caught on camera doing a Superman-style jump over a fence and into a pool to save his son.

Passavanti and his family were enjoying a relaxing afternoon on Sunday - his wife and daughter in the pool, while he was lounging in the shade - when his son, Rocco, fell into the water.

He ran full speed and dived over the gate and into the pool to save his son. "You have got to get to him as quickly as you possibly can", he said.

"Rocco is getting faster and more daring", the relieved father said. The father admitted he and the other three adults should have closed the gate.

While Passavanti joked on Facebook in his post "baby gates only work when you close them, ' he still advises parents to take 'preventative measures" and watch their children closely.

He is now taking the opportunity to help Rocco learn to swim and promised to never stop supervising his son, especially when there is a large body of water nearby.

Bear keeps man at lair for 1 month
At the same time, Independent researchers unveiled that the video clip may have come from Kazakhstan, Russia's neighbour. A man was rescued from a bear den after he spent an entire month in the animal's lair in Russia's remote Tuva region.

Speaking to WPTV, he said: "The second you see it, you get Superman strength and just have to go for it".

"It didn't even cross my mind to go around [the gate]".

"When I first saw that video, my mouth dropped to the floor, 'Oh my goodness!'" said Anna Stewart, manager of the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Palm Beach County.

Anna Stewart, manager of the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Palm Beach County, told the station that while she understands why a parent would jump in after their child, it could be unsafe. And among the children ages 1 to 4 who die of unintentional injuries, drowning accounts for one-third of the deaths. In 2017, nearly 1,000 children in the USA drowned, a 2019 AAP study said.

In Australia, a country known for its love of water, children are drowning because parents are distracted by devices such as mobile phones.
