Incredible pictures have emerged of a baby being rescued from the open ocean after she floated a kilometre out to sea when her parents forgot they left her in the water.

According to DailyMail, the Turkish Coastguard was called into action today after beachgoers and the child's parents realised in horror that strong winds and ocean currents were swiftly pulling her towards Greece.

Kept alive only because she was sitting inside a child's flotation device, 10-month-old Melda Ilgin was pulled from the ocean when rescuers dived into the water to catch her.

The ordeal began when the Ilgin family took a trip to the beach near the town of Kucukkuyu, in Turkey's south west coast, BGN News reported. Sitting her in a child's flotation device, they left her in the water while they relaxed.

However, strong northerly winds sent her offshore and sailing quickly south towards the Greek island of Lesbos. Horrified beachgoers then realised the gravity of the situation and after several attempts to rescue her themselves, called the coastguard.

Travelling almost a kilometre offshore, rescuers dived into the water and pulled her from the sea.
She was soon reunited with her parents, who quickly ushered her from the scene as a gathered crowd looked on in bewilderment.
