A surveillance camera at Seattle s Elliott Bay Marina recorded the birth of a baby harbor seal on the dock Monday.

Harbormaster Brian Kaloper posted the video on YouTube. He said it happened around 9 a.m. on G-Dock.

Mom and baby hung around enjoying our maternity wing until about noon and then took off for baby s first swimming lesson, said Kaloper.

The dock was immediately closed and locked until the pair made it back into the water.
