Mayor Joy Cooper
A former Hallandale Beach lifeguard who was fired after he left his assigned zone to help save a drowning man was honored Monday.
After the recent controversy over the firing of a Hallandale Beach lifeguard, the city’s mayor is now chiming in.
Lifeguard Tomas Lopez’s journey this week has been all over the map. He went from being hailed for helping save a life, to being fired for leaving his beach, to being offered his job back. But Monday, Lopez will once again be hailed, this time by Hallandale Beach.
