Just in time.

One seal barely escaped becoming a midday meal for a dozen killer whales.

Kirk Fraser was out with family and friends on a boat looking for some whales when they came across a pod of 12 orcas. They got there just in time, too: A seal bolted for the boat to avoid becoming an afternoon snack. The seal struggled to get onboard because it was in such a panic but finally made it. 

You can watch the harrowing moment below, but be warning: The language is NSFW. 

It apparently took 30 to 45 minutes for the whales to finally scram, which seems like a long time to wait, hoping that your meal swims back to you. Thankfully the group of bullies didn’t try rocking the ship or anything.

Fraser has more videos of the run-in on his YouTube channel
