Digital Daily: Sea lion pup found in California parking garage rescued

A sea lion pup found itself a long way from home recently.

Authorities said 5-month-old Santos was found flopping about in a Northern California parking structure.

Fortunately, a local citizen called the Redwood fire Department and firefighters came to the little guy's rescue.

The pup had no problem making friends and had a knack for posing for pictures, but all that excitement seemed to exhaust him, so he took a nap.

The Marine Mammal Center picked up Santos and took him to Sausalito where he will be monitored, treated and eventually released back into the wild.

It's still not clear how he made it from the ocean to the parking lot in the first place.
