video - Sea lion drags girl into water off Steveston dock in Richmond, B.C
A Richmond resident captured dramatic video on Saturday showing a sea lion grabbing a young girl by the dress and dragging her into the water off a dock at Steveston in Richmond, B.C. SFU student Michael Fujiwara was on the dock when he saw the large, male sea lion approach, so he started filming it as a crowd gathered around the animal.
He says a family began feeding it bread crumbs while the young girl got close to the edge of the dock.
"And it initially jumped up to the girl to read her I guess," he said of the incident seen at the 1:35 mark of the video above. "And then it came back up a second time, but this time grabbing the girl by the waist and dragging her down into the water." Fujiwara says he does not know if the man who jumped into the water to rescue the girl was related to her. He says it appeared that no one was injured in the incident, but the girl and those with her left immediately after getting her back on the dock.
