FL Lifeguard Gets Job Back And Says “No Thanks”
Hallandale Beach, FL (WIBX) - The Florida lifeguard who lost his job after he saved the life of a man who was drowning in an area outside of his assigned jurisdiction is being offered his job back by the Orlando-based company that fired him.
Tomas Lopez says, however, that he is moving on, and does not want the job.
The move comes after Lopez's case received international attention. His employer admitted that the company acted too hastily when its leadership team dismissed him. Many of Lopez's co-workers quit in protest.
