Watch: Abby the Sea Lion Rescued Off Dana Point

A sick sea lion beached herself in Orange County this week. Watch the first-person video of the rescue.

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.
