Hero lifeguard who was fired after saving man outside his ‘zone’ offered back his job | Fox News

A Florida lifeguard who was fired after leaving his beach zone to save a drowning man has been offered his job back.

Tomas Lopez, 21, who was sacked by employer Jeff Ellis & Associates after his heroics Monday at Hallendale Beach, 18 miles north of Miami, should never have been fired, Jeff Ellis told the Sun-Sentinel Thursday.

“I am of the opinion that the supervisors acted hastily, ” Ellis said. “It was not the appropriate course of action to take,” he said.

Tomas Lopez joins our Wall of Honor for doing the right thing in spite of company rules.  Rules and regulations that prohibit doing the ‘right’ thing for liability reasons are amoral and should be ignored.  Due to public pressure the hero lifeguard has been offered his job back…his nine coworkers who quit in solidarity or expressed support for Lopez haven’t been so lucky.
