Caught on Cam: Seal Pup Born on the Beach in San Diego

It's pupping season in San Diego

A woman excitedly dubbed the birth of a baby seal on a beach in San Diego as a "miracle of life."

The video, submitted to NBC 7 by Angie McCall, was taken Sunday afternoon at La Jolla Cove.

"It's a beautiful miracle of life," McCall can be heard on the video. "That's so beautiful."

McCall said she was just enjoying a sunny day with her family when she noticed the pregnant seal about to give birth and grabbed her phone.

This is the time of year to see pups on our beaches as female Harbor seals return to the San Diego coastline to give birth in February and March.

Because the beach at the Children's Pool area is closed to the public during this time of year, it's recommended that you stay above the beach on the sea wall or the sidewalk.
