Considering the tens of thousands of visitors who enjoy the Southend beaches, this really is a non story.

a day at the seaside, amongst such crowds, is not without risk...... no room for complacency on there

No, your post is a non story.

A little girl is unconscious, face down in the water and all you can do is post ridiculous "trying to be clever" replies.

Well congratulations, you completely failed on every level.

I sincerely hope the little girl is okay, this would have been an absolute nightmare!!

I saw this first hand - The mother couldn't have been less urgent if she tried.

If it wasn't for two bystanders, she wouldn't have been in any fit state by the time the ambulance turned up.

It was the unmentioned bystanders that saved that girls life yesterday, and going by the attitude of the group of people (mother included), I bet they didn't even get a thank you!

We'll I for one would like to say well done you unsung heros!

My family and I was on the beach and my husband was one of the bystanders who helped save this little girls life and no he didn't get a thank you but to be honest he was just pleased he managed to get the little girl breathing again. She was with a large group of people, and some of which was playing in the sea, but i personally don't see how the little girl was left unseen from what her family was saying was nearly 2 minutes.

I am just pleased the little girl is OK.

Thank you to all the bystanders that made an effort to help, as for the mother, the child should not be returned to her!

You have to feel sorry for the kids, they never asked to be brought into this world let alone be brought up by a parent like that.
