The Lifesaving Deed That Ended In A Lawsuit

Now and then you hear a story that makes you go WTF? As the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished, and in this case, the lifesaving deed ended in a lawsuit. The truth is often stranger than fiction, but when you get sued for doing something heroic, you wish it was fiction. The International Life Saving Federation has a stellar record, and your chances of drowning when they are on duty are 1 in 18 million. A person has a better chance of being struck by lightning than drowning when these guys man the beaches. However, it is their efficiency that got one of their own in hot water.

An unexpected turn

Hobviously, the pseudonym of one Reddit user named Stephen, was caught off guard when he was doing his job. When you are in a life and death situation, and you are the one that is doing the saving, very little thought goes into the action, and a lawsuit is the furthest thing from your thoughts. Training instincts take over, and the only goal is to save the person who is in danger. However, Hobviously was in for a nasty surprise when he visited a California beach.
