    Sacked for being a hero

    A Florida man has been besieged with job offers - after he was sacked for saving a woman from an armed robber.

    Juan Canales, 42, lost his job as a waiter with a Thai restaurant in Fort Lauderdale after his boss got sick of the media attention.

    But he quickly received new job offers once the twist to the story was reported in the local press, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

    "I just felt bad for him because here is a guy who does the right thing and he gets fired for it," said Peggy Talerico, of All Atlas Roofing.

    Robert Garofalo, owner of an electrical repair business, said he, too, wanted to help: "Come on, the guy fired him for being a hero. Ridiculous."

    Canales was fired after subduing a knife-wielding robber who tried to steal a Honda car from a woman customer.

    He disarmed the man then, with the help of three other men, managed to hold the robber down until police arrived.


    Mr Canales then spent an hour talking to police and the media. He returned to work but when the lunch shift ended, his boss fired him.

    "The owner got belligerent" about all the attention his scuffle with the carjacker generated, he said.

    Although he was "devastated," Mr Canales said, "I would do it again because it was the right thing to do."
