Baby seal stranded on Jersey shore beach

- A baby seal found stranded on a Jersey shore beach has been rescued by the Coast Guard.

The seal was found Saturday on a stretch of beach in Cape May that's part of a Coast Guard training facility. Guard members were assisted in the rescue by staffers from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine.

It wasn't clear how long the seal was stranded before it was found.

Officials say the rescue was made without incident.

"Station Cape May made sure this baby seal got the help it needed today after hearing it was stranded on the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May (Official) beach. Great job to Station Cape May members and Marine Mammal Stranding Center!"
