Is there a criteria for saving lives?
Should saving someone’s life be debated or cover in legalities?
Shouldn’t saving a life be a basic instinct.
Well apparently Jeff Ellis Management, a private life guard company based in America don’t have this basic instinct.
Tomas Lopez, a 21-year-old lifeguard, was fired on Monday after he left his station to help a man who had been swimming in an unprotected area of Hallandale Beach. After saving the man’s life, Tomas found out quickly that he was being relieved of his lifeguard duties.
In a statement Jeff Ellis Management mentioned that lifeguards leaving their designated areas of protection present a liability issue.
Stick a pin.
How can one worry about legal issues when someone is at risk of dying?
“The reason I was fired is just ridiculous,” “It is a ridiculous rule, really. What was I supposed to do? Just let the guy drown?”- Tomas Lopez
This quote I pray lives on with us for eternity!
“What was I supposed to do? Just let the guy drown?”
Could you just sit by and not help someone in need?
Do you just sit by and not help those in need?
We live in a sad world where looking out for others and the preservation of life seems to be no longer at the forefront of our minds.
And this my friends is the cause of all of our problems.
We HAVE to be our brothers keeper.
Today evaluate yourself, are you your brothers keeper?
Or do you play for TEAM ME.
