Then a sea lion leapt out of the water, bit into his hand and yanked him overboard. The animal smashed the 62-year-old American accountant against the boats side and sent his legs flying into the air like a rag dolls before it dragged him some 6m underwater, Mr Carlin said of the April 5 incident. After 15 seconds, I thought I was going to die, he said. I continued to struggle, but thought this is the way I was going to die. It was unbelievable to me. Then, as quickly as the attack happened, Mr Carlin was released. He swam toward the surface as the sea lion bit his foot, puncturing a bone. He managed to make his way back to his boat that was in a bay off San Diego in California. He and his wife moved it closer to land while his hand gushed blood and he struggled to breathe because of his battered chest. At one point, Mr Carlin said, he lost his vision. Mr Carlin spent two days in the hospital. The gash on his hand required 20 stitches. Mr Carlin hopes his hand will have healed enough so he can go back out fishing this week. An experienced surfer, scuba diver and fisho, Mr Carlin said his experience showed how dangerous sea lions could be, despite the fact people often did not fear them.
