They are almost same..
First one uses the Capacitor between Bulk-Gate, second one uses an extra capacitor.
When ESD transient pulse appears, a current flows through the resistor and a voltage occurs between Gate-Source of NMOS transistors and this NMOS makes VDD-VSS short circuit in a temporary time slot.So protects the IC against ESD zapps.
