Lifeguard fired -- for saving life of swimmer in trouble

A lifeguard was sacked for saving a man's life. His employers feared he could have left them liable for a negligence suit.

Mr Lopez said has no regrets. Helping the man, who remains in intensive care, "was the moral thing to do". he said.Several colleagues agree. Seven have already resigned.As outrage mounted last night, the firm issued a second statement, saying: "If we did something inappropriate, we will make it right." 

The lesson to draw, once again, is that anyone who uses the word inappropriate tells you he is an enemy of civilisation.
