Lifeguard Drives Over Sunbather’s Head

`For the second time, a Miami Beach lifeguard driving a truck has run over a sunbather lying on the beach.

Miami Beach Fire Chief Javier Otero said the 3,400-pound lifeguard truck ran over 19-year-old Jillian Gonzalez’s head and shoulder on Sunday. An official said the soft sand likely saved her life because she was able to stand upright after being run over, according to the report. [..]

A reporter asked, “Were you crying?”

“I was crying hysterically,” Gonzalez said.

“What were you saying?” the reporter asked.

“Get me help, get me to a hospital, my face is broken, my face is broken,” Gonzalez said.’
