WATCH: Sea lion attacks young girl

Watch the terrifying moment a sea lion pulls a little girl into the water in Canada.

The moment a sea lion attacked a young girl in Canada has been caught on camera.

Michael Fujiwara was on a wharf in Richmond, British Columbia during the weekend, when a California sea lion appeared nearby.

He filmed as people gathered around, holding their hands over the water.

Soon, however, the animal lunges at a little girl who was sitting on the edge of the water. The sea lion grabbed her, and dragged her into the sea, before a bystander jumped in to rescue her.

The general manager of the Steveston Harbour Authority, Bob Baziuk, told CNN both the girl and the man who saved her were unhurt.

Watch the moment the girl was dragged into the water in the video above.
