Lifeguard Tomas Lopez told NBC 6 that he won't be taking the job back.
Lopez was fired earlier this week after he said he was alerted by beachgoers that a man was struggling in the water, which was part of unguarded territory outside the lifeguard zone. He said he raced out to try and help him. A sign warning beachgoers to swim at their own risk separates the two zones.
