After some initial circling, the sea lion raises itself up out of the water briefly, delighting onlookers.
A few minutes later, a young girl sits down on a railing and the animal suddenly jumps up and grabs her dress, pulling her into the water.An older man immediately jumps in after her and both are pulled to safety by people on the dock. Neither of them were reportedly injured.
Throughout most of the video, the sea lion can be seen raising above the water line, perhaps surveying the girl and other bystanders. A spokesperson with the Steveston Harbour Authority told 680 NEWS they haven’t received a report about the incident but confirmed that sea lions do frequent the area.
