This is the moment a group of brave wildlife rescuers saved a struggling sea lion after he got his head stuck inside a tire while swimming.
Spotted floundering on a busy beach, two men can seen using some odd pieces of rope and a hook to miraculously free the huge mammal from the jaws of death.
Footage - Mar - Plata - Argentina - Stretch
The footage was recorded at Mar del Plata, Argentina, a well-known stretch of coastline for sea lions.
In the video, the creature was spotted by beachgoers with the rubber tire wrapped tightly around its portly neck.
Discomfort - Passers-by - Help - Wildlife - Group
Clearly in some discomfort, the passers-by called for the help of a local wildlife group, Fundacion Fauna Argentina (FFA).
At first there was a suggestion that the weighty animal could be sedated to make the rescue easier.
Representative - FFA - Concerns - Sea - Lion
However a representative of FFA confirmed they would not have chosen this tactic out of concerns for the sea lion.
