How Did This NJ Man Thank Lifeguards Who Saved Him From Drowning?

A drunken New Jersey man had to be saved by lifeguards after nearly being swept out to sea by dangerous rip current. His way of saying thank you to those who put their own lives in danger is what is attracting attention. Ivan Rivera was under the influence of alcohol when he and another man got caught in the current and began being carried farther and farther away from the beach at Seaside Heights, NJ. Once he was saved he allegedly became belligerent….and allegedly punched one of the lifeguards who went through the trouble to save his life. Talk about ungrateful.

Police say that Rivera was charged with simple assault , disorderly conduct and underage drinking.
