A pretty scary incident has unfolded in Canada after a sea lion reached out of the water and dragged a young girl down off a pier.
Tourists and locals were having a bit of a laugh watching the sea lion play around at Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf before things took a dark turn.
Out of nowhere it launches itself out of the water, grabbing her dress in its mouth and pulling her in.
Thankfully a family member instinctively jumped in the water and pulled the girl from the animal’s clutches before the two are pulled up back to the pier by bystanders.
There were no reports of any injuries to either of the pair. By Michael Fujiwara.
