Florida Lifeguards Encouraged to Let Swimmers Drown
Tomas Lopez lost his job yesterday for saving a life.
The Florida lifeguard, who rescued a man drowning in a non-protected area of the beach, briefly left his section of the shore unmanned.
The 21-year old admits it was careless of him to save a life outside of his territory, and hopes his employers will give him a second chance.
“In the future I’d turn away if I saw a shark attacking a baby outside of my jurisdiction,” Lopez promised. “I worked too hard to secure that $8/hour job to let anything jeopardize it again.”
