The video shows 8-year-old Ryon Kim playing in the water on a beach in Hawaii. His grandfather gestures to him to get out but when the boy tries to leave the water, the waves suck him back in,

For a few seconds, Ryon's mother and his Grandfather struggle to reach him but that's when a good Samaritan raced in to help. Sunset Beach is known for it's big wave surfing but all of the life guards were gone for the day.

Ryon's mother says he swallowed a little bit of water but is okay.
