Viral: Sea lion shows concern when little girl falls


It's Friday, it's beautiful out, here's something that'll make you say: "D'awwwww."

A new video that has hit the Internet shows a little girl enjoying the sea lions at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

According to, one of the sea lions seemed to be following and playing with the little girl as she ran around in front of the exhibit.

Then, as she's running, she trips and falls on the ground. The sea lion immediately comes to a stop and appears to express concern about the little girl's well-being.

We believe she was OK and that the sea lion's blood pressure went back to normal.
