Video of sea lions on the San Diego freeway receiving help from two good Samaritans; SeaWorld crew rescue animals safely

SAN DIEGO – California motorists encountered an unusual sight Friday and it was all captured on video.

A sea lion – which may have lost its bearings or been struck by lightning – roamed state 94th Street in San Diego, stopping traffic while the drivers involved, California Highway Patrol agents and SeaWorld staff rescue shy aquatic animal.

The errant marine mammal appeared east of the freeway near SR-15 — about three miles from San Diego Bay and about eight miles from the ocean — shortly after 9:30 a.m., said Jim Bettencourt, public affairs officer plus CHP said .

Two good Samaritans were caught in a video instructing the animal to cross the road safely as drivers patiently waited until all was cleared.

Josefine Jandinger, who recorded the video, said she was stunned when she saw the sea animal crossing the highway, miles from the ocean.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she told San Diego’s KGTV. “It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”

Jandinger said two good Samaritans – a man and a woman – direct traffic around the animal to make sure it doesn’t get hurt.

The sea lion can be seen slowly crossing the highway.

Crews of the SeaWorld San Diego rescue team were able to safely capture the animal with the help of the California Highway Patrol.

The team said they weren’t sure exactly how the sea lion got so far inland.

SeaWorld San Diego has since transported the animal to its park.
