Dramatic video shows young girl pulled into water by aggressive sea lion

AOL.com Editors

An exciting sea lion sighting in Vancouver on Saturday soon turned into a nightmare when the large creature grabbed and pulled a young girl underwater.

The dramatic footage, shot by student Michael Fujiwara, shows a group of people admiring the animal in the water before it grabbed a girl's white dress and pulled her off the dock. A man quickly dove in the water to pull the girl out. Luckily, she was not hurt, according to CBC News.

"The sea lion actually attracted a lot of attention from the visitors there, including the young girl," Fujiwara told the Vancouver Sun. "She and her family, I guess, they came, they started feeding the animal bread crumbs or whatever it was, and then I guess the animal got a little too comfortable."
