This week, in keeping with the fact it is internationally renowned, I am awarding it to Jeff Ellis and Associates of Florida.
Whom are they?
They provide lifeguard services.
For why am I awarding them this?
Just ask Tomas Lopez, one of their (now ex) lifeguards.
Mr Lopez was patrolling part of Hallandale Beach north of Miami, when he was told that a swimmer was in trouble in an unguarded area of the beach.
He is quoted by the BBC:
"I wasn't going to say no."He went to the man's rescue.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, he was fired!
His company claims that he had broken company rules and could have put other swimmers at risk. Susan Ellis of lifeguard provider Jeff Ellis and Associates told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
"We have liability issues and can't go out of the protected area."She added that the stretch of Hallandale Beach that Mr Lopez was supposed to be patrolling on Monday was being protected by other lifeguards who were on the phone to emergency operators at the time.
Be that as it may, Mr Lopez and an off-duty nurse then helped the man until paramedics arrived to take him to hospital.
Two colleagues have quit in protest!
