Girl pulled into water by Sea Lion may have rare infection.

The girl who was pulled into a harbor in Canada by a sea lion is being treated for possibly being exposed to a rare infection.

Over 20 million people have watched the video of the sea lion thrusting out of the water and grabbing the girl's dress. She was pulled to safety, but had a superficial wound that could've been infected with a rare bacteria that's found inside marine mammals' mouths.

The infection is commonly known as "seal finger" and could result in loss of fingers or limbs. Her family is working with the Vancouver Aquarium to get proper treatment after learning of the possible problem while watching a TV interview with aquarium staff.
