VIDEO: Sea lion grabs girl from Richmond dock and pulls her into the water

‘The girl was rescued by her family members and bystanders,’ according to Youtube post

RICHMOND — A young girl standing on a dock was pulled into the water by a sea lion in Steveston this weekend, and a camera captured the attack.

Check it out here:

Video of the incident was posted today to the Youtube account of Michael Fujiwara.

“Watch as a sea lion attacks and drags a young girl into the waters at the Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf, Richmond B.C. Canada,” says the video description.

“The girl was rescued by her family members and bystanders. Nobody was injured in the incident.”

This must have been a hungry sea lion, but the title of the video (“Killer Sea lion drags girl into Steveston waters”) is a bit much.
