JLS singer Aston Merrygold had to be rescued from a swimming pool by lifeguards when filming for a music video almost went tragically wrong.
The 24-year-old was left "really shaken" after getting his foot caught in camera cables as the band filmed an underwater scene fully clothed.
"He couldn't untangle the cable and was underwater for some time," a witness told The Sun.
"The other lads thought he was joking until it became obvious he was stuck. Luckily they had lifeguards on set who dived in to save him."
"In the end he was gutted that a couple of blokes rescued him instead of female lifeguards."
Aston was later able to return to shooting, which was being prepared for JLS' 4th Dimension arena tour which starts on Wednesday.
The pint-sized singer X-Factor star hasn't had much lucky recently, crashing his £150,000 Ferrari into a bin when trying to escape a group of crazed fans in February.
