Fourth swimmer attacked by sea lion at Aquatic Park


Swimmers are being urged to be careful after a woman was bitten by a sea lion in San Francisco’s Aquatic Park on Thursday morning, the fourth such attack in recent weeks.

The woman was bitten on the knee at approximately 7 a.m. and was hospitalized, according to the Chronicle. There were three incidents in December at the park that may have been also caused by sea lions.

“We’re encouraging the public, if they are swimming, that they swim in pairs and keep a close eye out,” Fire Department Lt. John Baxter told the Chronicle.
