Hawaii: 60-year-old swimmer attacked by monk seal

A 60-year-old American tourist was the victim of a violent attack in the water by a mother monk seal who had just had a baby seal.

This incident happened last weekend on a beach in Kaimana, in the Waikiki district of Honolulu (Hawaii). The mother monk seal began brutally attacking the tourist, a 60-year-old teacher from California, for getting too close to her baby.

“No seal saw the swimmer and ran towards her. People started screaming and screaming to call 911. Everyone was panicking, no one knew what to do since there was no lifeguard on duty.”, says an eyewitness. The American had lacerations to her face, back and arm, reports Postsus.com.
