In the movie The Incredibles, superhero Mr. Incredible (and apparently the government) is sued for saving the life of an attempted suicide:
Oliver Sansweet’s lawyer: Mr. Sansweet didn’t ask to be saved. Mr. Sansweet didn’t want to be saved. And the injuries received from Mr. Incredible’s ‘actions,’ so-called, cause him daily pain.
Mr. Incredible: [lunging toward Sansweet] Hey, I saved your life!
Oliver Sansweet: You didn’t save my life, you ruined my death, that’s what you did!” —
