OLD ORCHARD BEACH (WGME) -- Crews rescued an abandoned seal pup in Old Orchard Beach Tuesday morning.

The baby seal was spotted under the pier around 9:45 a.m.

As a precaution, police surrounded the area with caution tape so onlookers didn't get too close.

Witnesses say the seal still had its umbilical cord attached.

Workers from Marine Mammals of Maine showed up to rescue the baby seal.

Officials are reminding the public to never touch a baby seal and to call marine officials.
