Being a bit inland on a cool weekend like this, it's easy to forget how close Mission Viejo is to the beach.
But this week our near neighbors to the west went to work saving a sick sealion.
A crew from the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach on Wednesday rescued a sick sea lion—since nicknamed Abby—that beached herself on some rocks at Strands Beach in Dana Point.
They used a GoPro video camera to record the whole thing from a first-person angle.
The PMMC reports that Abby is now resting "with her other pen-mates/characters, McGee, Franks, TonyD, Gibbs, Ziva and Ducky."
Apparently those are all names of characters on the TV show NCIS ...
Bonus shots of a sea lion cuddle party at the end of the video!
PMMC is open daily to the public, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. They encourage donations.
