A special meeting of the El Monte City Council was held Friday to address a lifeguard video flap.

As was earlier reported, several young lifeguards were fired after making a video spoof of the wildly popular "Gangnam Style" video by Korean pop singer Psy.

The lifeguards thought it would be a fun way to remember their summer. The city was not so amused, and fired them.

At Friday's meeting, several people spoke out in favor of the lifeguards getting their jobs back. At last report, that meeting was still going on.

A decision was not immediately reached.
