News Man saved from severe floods may sue his rescuers ‘because they took too long’

  1. A man who nearly drowned after his car was submerged in floods may sue his rescuers because they ‘took too long to save him’.

    Roy Ortiz, from Broomfield, Colorado, agreed he was lucky to be alive after becoming trapped in his car last September.

    He was stuck in the back of his vehicle for two hours before being rescued and had managed to survive on a small pocket of air.

    But now Ortiz is considering suing his rescuers for $500,000 (£300,000) because they were apparently not quick enough, and also didn’t realise he was still alive in the car.

    ‘It’s unfortunate to have to try and cast liability and responsibility for this act of God on the men and women who risked their own lives,’ his lawyer Ed Ferszt told CBS4.

    Ortiz is also unhappy with the county of Boulder, who he will include in any potential lawsuit, because he thinks the road should have been closed when waters begun to rise.

    The rescued man reportedly needs money to pay for his medical bills arising from the incident.

  2. You know what, if he's really going to sue them, then why didn't you fucking accept death. It's guys like this one who I want to die in accidents like this. They manipulate the situation to get something they want. Absolutely pathetic in my opinion. I see absolutely no logic in suing the people who saved your life. What if you fucking died instead, how would he have liked that.
     
  3. He should be grateful they saved him, instead of being a greedy little shit.
     
  4. I wish Iron Sheik saw this article. I'd love to see his tweet about it.

  5. This is almost as good as suing McDonalds for making their coffee too hot.
     
  6. Didn't that person get like 3rd degree burns though?
     
  7. Sure did. I think anyone would if they put a hot cup of coffee between their legs while operating a motor vehicle.
     
  8. Who told you to put the balm on? Did I tell you to put the balm on?
