1. Only in America: A lifeguard at Florida’s Hallandale Beach was rewarded for saving a drowning swimmer by being fired from his job. Lifeguard Tomas Lopez, 21, rushed to the aid of a man in an area where people are warned that they are swimming at their own risk — a slice of ocean outside of Lopez’s designated patrol territory. Lopez’s employer says coming to the aid of someone outside the area that the company is paid to patrol is a liability, puts swimmers within Lopez’s zone at risk, and is therefore prohibited. Lopez has since been offered his job back — an offer he declined.

    As a lifeguard, I can see where his employers were coming from, and I don’t think we’re getting all of the story here....
