Sea Lion: San Diego Man Pulled Underwater After Animal Saw Fish in Hand

By    |   Monday, 06 Apr 2015 12:53 PM

A San Diego man posing on a boat with a fish he caught was pulled underwater by a hungry sea lion that jumped from the surface of a marina and grabbed the fish.

The sea lion jumped onto the railing of a boat at the Hyatt Mission Bay Marina and snatched at the fish being held by the unidentified man on the boat, Reuters reported San Diego Fire Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson as saying.

The man was pulled into the water for about 15 seconds, Swanson said, and was brought to a hospital where he was treated for cuts on his arm and hand.

Media, citing witnesses including lifeguards, reported the man was posing for a photo with the large fish when the incident occurred.

California sea lions, many of them pups, have been washing ashore stranded and hungry in record numbers in recent months.
