A five-year-old girl is recovering from puncture wounds today after a seal pulled her into the water at West Vancouver's Thunderbird Marina yesterday evening.
North Vancouver resident Caleigh Cunning, 5, was with her father on the marina dock at about 6 p.m.after a fishing trip.
Her father Mike Cunning was cleaning fish, when a seal jumped onto the dock and pulled the girl under water, according to marina manager Fred McDonald.
Caleigh was wearing a lifejacket.
A neighbour on the dock jumped in and saved her, he said.
Caleigh suffered puncture wounds to her wrist, was treated at hospital and released.
