At this point in your life, there's a good chance you've seen more than enough YouTube videos to know you should never turn your back on a wild animal, especially a carnivorous predator. If not, then look no further than a new viral video showing the terrifying moment when a huge sea lion attacked a young girl and dragged her underwater.
The intense footage was captured by college student Michael Fujiwara, who was standing on a dock at the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf in Richmond, British Columbia. As you can see in the video (shown above), a small group of people watch the flabby mammal as it bobs around in the water for scraps of bread. But when a little girl crouches down to get a better look at the sea lion, it lunges at her face for a closer look of its own, leading to nervous laugher among the onlookers. While this would have been a great time to back away from the wild animal, the little girl sits and turns her back to it. The sea lion promptly lunges again and drags her into the water.
