edit.. from the linked article in the OP:
Other lifeguards watched Lopez's area during the rescue and were on the phone with 911 operators, the company said.
"The beach remained protected at all times," Ellis said.

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
She proceeded to bleed out and he transfused her against the wishes of her husband.
Within 20 minutes a lawyer in Atlanta called re: a civil suit for violating her husband's religious beliefs.. Jehovah's Witness.
My CEO told them to pound sand.
You cannot make a young doctor party to a killing.. nor can you tell a lifeguard he has no right to rescue someone in trouble.
I am empathetic to the guy. I respect his choice. I wouldnt have fired him. I understand both sides. Its not a 'lawsuit' issue, but as was pointed out...whats the FIRST thing someone does here...the guy should...what? Oh yeah...sue.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
The lifeguard did what he was trained to do....its just like the COP standing on the border of his town and the next town and sees a crime in progress against a person that can cause harm...HE STOPS IT and his town covers him legally. Same with EMTs and fire they cross make believe lines all the time to save people.
This is absurd really...if your ass is up out of the water and your head was under and you needed a lifeguard to pull your head out of your ass YOU WOULD ALL BE HAILING THIS GUY A HERO and not defending anything else..
