A seal that somehow ended up in a downtown Redwood City parking structure Sunday morning is now under the care of the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, fire officials said.

The Redwood City Fire Department posted a video to Facebook from the rescue of the 5-month-old seal they’ve named Santos.

A citizen called the fire department at 7:39 a.m. Sunday after spotting Santos in the parking area of 601 Marshall St.

The seal was first brought to a fire station “where he posed for pictures and took a nap,” officials said. Later, officials from the Marine Mammal Center picked up the seal and took him to Sausalito to be monitored, treated and eventually released.
