Sea lion pup escapes jaws of death by hopping onto Argentine beach out of reach of orca pod

This was the moment a tiny sea lion pup managed to escape a pod of orca whales circling around a beach in Punta Norte, Argentina.

The footage shows several orcas encircling the animal as it attempts to make its way to shore.

Amazingly, the pup eventually makes it on to the beach, escaping the jaws of the predators.

See what happens in the video above.
