    Taken down since it was posted on Sunday, hundreds of commenters on 推特 have put themselves in the woman’s shoes, discussing how they would have reacted to the trying situation.

    Some users wondered why the woman didn't simply speed away, whisking herself and the doomed sea lion to safety. But things aren't that simple - in many coves and harbors, it is illegal to turn on engines within a certain distance of endangered animals like orcas

    As she tells the animal over and over that it has ‘gotta goand ‘get in the waterit looks challengingly back at her, as if imploring her to hit the gas and get out of there.

    '哦,我的上帝, I don’t know what to do,’ the woman says, her voice wavering.

    The woman audibly gasps and gulps as the orcas weave around and under the boatand with good reason.

    Although an orca has never killed a human in recorded history, they have been seen working together to tip huge ice floes to catch escaping prey. 去年, 的 纽约邮报 已报告, a group of orcas systematically rammed the rudders of small boats to tip them over off the coast of Spain, terrorizing 33 seafarers.

    Unimaginably strong, orcas often use their tails to punt seals up to 80 脚在空中, 根据 新闻周刊, and they can launch their bodiesweighing between 3,000 和 12,000 磅 – 取决于 15 脚在空中.

    '听, I know wild orcas don’t generally go for humans, but if I was in that situation I would panic,’ wrote @mitkitty1 of the hair-raising scenario. ‘Kinda hard to stay calm and think about orca facts when there’s three giant hungry apex predators around you.

    Even Great White Sharks are terrified of orcasif one senses that a killer whale has travelled through its regular hunting territory, it will abandon the area for up to a year, 根据 Smithsonian Magazine.

    ‘I know you’re supper, 蜜糖,’ she said to the wide-eyed seal as the pair watched the menacing whales. ‘This is how the world works.

    After nearly four minutes of pleading with the ill-fated seal, it slides off the boat and she motors away, looking back at the spot where it dove into the water.

    Many users swore that they would have acted more nobly under the same circumstances, acting to save the poor animal.

    ‘That’s not how orcas roll man,’ replied @TriggerStorm. ‘We don’t know how hungry they were, they will definitely capsize your boat if they want to. They’re actually starting to do it more now and it’s terrifying.

    Others made light of the life-and-death situation, using gifs, making jokes and dubbing audio over the user’s original video.

    ‘[What do you mean] I gotta go?’ one user captured a picture of the wide-eyed sea lion. ‘B**** start the boat.

    ‘女士’, this ain’t got nothing to do with you,’ the user wrote under a still of a looming whale from the clip. ‘Give us the sea lion and you’ll be on your way.
