    The Lifeguard was only doing his job, and he gets fired for rescuing a drowning man? What type of rules do they have these days?

    Since I used to work in the lifeguard business years ago, I know we're trained to help anyone - especially if they're at the risk of drowning. What does everyone think about this? Is his company liable for this?

    What does everyone think about this?

    That would have looked fantastic on the company had it gone the other way.
    "I didn't rescue him because my employee said he was out of my area and to just let him drown."

    Yeah.
    Would have went great.

    Massive applause for the lifeguard with a real set of balls.

    This is how it starts. :|

    "You do what I tell you to do and ignore everything else."

    And to think there are people out there who would have listened to their boss and not saved another person's life...

    I really can't understand the logic of these kinds of companies. I mean, sure he went out of his designated zone or whatever, but in order to save a person's life. Isn't that what they hired him to do in the first place? I mean, who cares if that company fired him. He did the right thing to do. And that was a good clue on the kind of management that company has, obviously they don't care for other peoples lives.

    I wonder though, can't he sue that company for firing him? They were definitely out of line, in my opinion.

    Regards of the whole situation, the boss is wrong. As a lifeguard, it is your duty to help people and save them. I'm sure this lifeguard won't have a hard time finding a new job.
    @hunter214 I know I would, and hopefully he does.
