A Boater’s Life Was Saved…by a Seal.

A boater in California named Scott Thompson recently fell off his boat near Santa Barbara, and was too far from shore to swim.  So he thought he might die, and almost gave up.

But then a seal showed up and kept nudging him.  So he felt like he wasn’t alone anymore.  He swam for 5 hours until he got to an oil platform and workers pulled him out.  He had hypothermia but survived.  He says the seal saved his life.
