Fired lifeguard says ‘no thanks’ to job offer [View all]

By CARLI TEPROFF AND ESTEBAN ILLADES

The Miami Herald

Tomas Lopez, the Hallandale Beach lifeguard who was fired this week after he rescued a man outside of his coverage zone, was offered back his job Thursday, but “humbly declined,” Lopez told The Miami Herald.

“The company offered a real good apology,” Lopez said.

Lopez, 21, said he will take a break from lifeguarding and focus on his studies at Broward College.

Lopez was fired Monday after he left his station at 1:40 p.m. Monday to help a man who was drowning behind the Hemispheres apartment complex, 1950 S. Ocean Dr.
