A woman was bitten by a sea lion when she was swimming in the waters at San Francisco's Aquatic Park in the fourth similar attack in about one month, the San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) said. "The majority of cases in our series occurred at low tide, and bumping of the swimmer by the animal before or after a bite was common, but no clear tide or attack pattern was identified".

John Baxter said a retired San Francisco firefighter who also was swimming helped the badly bleeding woman as she came out of the water. "It bit her and pulled".

Fire crews say if you choose to swim at the Aquatic Park, swim in pairs.
