Bipolar Man Sues Rescuers For Saving His Life


A man who reportedly suffered a bipolar episode and tried to drown himself in a pool is suing the police officers and lifeguard who pulled him out of the water.

The lawsuit filed last Friday by 23-year-old Mateusz Fijalkowski from Virginia says he was left underwater for more than two minutes.

He says eight police officers watched and stopped a lifeguard from jumping in to save him.

The Fairfax County Police Department says officers acted appropriately to save Fijalkowski and protect themselves and the lifeguard from a disturbed person, according to The Washington Post.

Fijalkowski says he’s suing because the 2016 incident left him with more than $100,000 in medical bills.

At the time of the incident, Fijalkowski says he had never suffered any mental health episodes.

He was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
