Julie Andrews has recalled saving the life of one of the child actors in The Sound of Music after she nearly drowned while filming.

In her new memoir Home Work: A Memoir of My Hollywood Years, the star discusses filming the 1965 classic alongside seven-year-old child actress Kym Karath, now 61, who played Gretl Von Trapp.

The two were filming a scene in a boat on water and, in a terrifying turn of events, the vessel rocked violently and sent them both overboard - and Kym couldn't swim.

More dead wild elephants found at Thai waterfall; toll at 11

  More dead wild elephants found at Thai waterfall; toll at 11 Wildlife officials in Thailand said Tuesday they have discovered the carcasses of five more wild elephants downstream from a waterfall where the bodies of six other elephants were found last weekend. The carcasses were discovered by a drone being used to investigate how the first six elephants plunged to their deaths at the Haew Narok — Ravine of Hell — waterfall in Khao Yai National Park in northeastern Thailand, said Sompote Maneerat, spokesman for the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department.© Provided by The Associated Press In this Oct.

Julie, 84, remembered: "The assistant director waded rather urgently through the water towards me and whispered, 'The little one can't swim...'

"'WHAT?!...'" she continued, detailing her response. "'Yes,' he said. 'We'd be most grateful if you could get to her as quickly as possible once you're in the water.'"

It was during the second take that the terrifying ordeal happened, as the veteran actress shared: "I have never swum so fast in my life. I could see the poor child flailing away and going under at least twice... Crew members dove into the water to help save her, and mercifully we got there in time."

Eventually, Kym began vomiting the water she had swallowed and was ultimately saved by Heather Menzies, who played Louisa in the movie. However, it was later revealed that the actress' fear of water followed her into later life due to the lasting trauma of the incident.
