... which made me wonder.
Would the Life Guard have been liable under any good samaritan laws, for NOT acting to save the drowning victim?

offered this hero his job back and there is no word yet on the fate of 9 other lifeguards who quit in a show of solidarity with the kid.WTF!!!!!!!!!!!
Excuse me while I rant!....................
Ellis,you're a politically correct *******,who gives a crap if this kid was "out of bounds",he saved a fellow human's life,wtf is more imporatant that that,you ******???
I've got a much better idea Ellis,why don't you fire your incredibly stupid wife instead of that kid,she's the one who fired him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As per your link Josh:
"Company supervisor Susan Ellis told WPTV that Lopez was let go for violating company policy."
So then,I guess it's safe to assume that it's the policy of *Susan Ellis* to let one of your lifeguards watch a man drown when he could have saved him???
Right now,Ellis I'm wondering if your stupid family grew up near high voltage power lines.
I'm sorry but it's been a long,hot day and I have a rather low tolerance level for "BS" morons.!!!!!
This is a clear example of why you shouldn't hire relatives with little experience and no judgement to work in your company. (i.e. Nepotism) I'd love to see the other 9 interviewed to find out what kind of boss she was. She sounds like a heartless barracuda, which are so often employed to manage employees.
It is possible that they may have been worried about legal and insurance liability, (which is the result and responsibility of lawyers over the years who have sued successfully when rescue attempts have failed, or have saved people otherwise so brain damaged that they never wake up). That is a travesty of the intent of the legal system.
And given current Temperatures, since this is the first day in perhaps 2 weeks that Toronto has been only in the low 80's instead of humid and near 90, I understand your irritability.
Climate Canada or whatever they're called measure the temperatures at Toronto International Airport, actually sited in any part of Toronto but in Mississauga next door, in a weather station surrounded by grass and open spaces, subject to cooling breezes. Toronto proper is from 5 to 15 degrees warmer in summer because of the concrete and tarmac asphalt on the streets and the reflections from the mirrored buildings. Last week the asphalt was buckling on some roads.
Hope you don't mind my sharing a rant of my own, Tony.
