Just saw this on yahoo, what a joke! What someone does with their time off is their business IMO. What better way to relieve "stress" than chillin on a beach in Australia? They should have done the opposite and did something nice for him for saving the children, but that's not how the world works I guess.
From other articles I've read he claimed to be too stressed to get out of bed and was lethargic. Then they see footage of him at a beach having traveled to Australia. Under the circumstances I disagree with firing them but had he not saved lives and just been spotted in a news clip walking down the beach then I say see ya!
