Pool worker who nearly drowned in pool sues rescuers who saved him

“A man who couldn’t swim, but came to Fairfax County to work at a pool in 2016 and almost drowned himself, has filed a federal lawsuit against the lifeguard who pulled him out of the water and the county police officers who resuscitated him.” On his third day on the job, witnesses said the plaintiff began acting strangely in what was later deemed a bipolar episode and jumped into the pool. “It’s a frivolous lawsuit — we saved a young man’s life,” Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler told a reporter. “He was trying to commit suicide by drowning himself.” [Neal Augenstein, WTOP]
