When a tourist was filmed yanking a 6-foot-long shark away from children, the 62-year-old became an overnight hero and Internet sensation. But Paul Marshallsea says that his good deed backfired, as his employer fired him and his wife shortly after. "If I had not gone on to save the kids, my wife and I would still have a job," he told The Daily Mirror.
