So I heard on the radio that in 2012 a male trainer at a gym was not allowed to go into the female's locker room. It ended up that due to this rule he did not go into the locker room and a female member of the gym ended up dying. Was he right?

Of course not! Exceptions like these should be made clear in the rules.

Yeah this gym needs to change their policy. The guy should have gone in as well. I would have if I was in his shoes.

Sorry ran out of room in the question, but other female members came out of the locker room and said to go in and give CPR and call the police.

That's absolutely ridiculous then to not let him in

There's a way for a male employee to enter a women's locker room without any embarrassment to anyone, just as there's a way for a janitor of one sex to clean the restroom of the other. I know, because I was in the locker room of my YWCA when a rat...

..came up through the drain pipe in a shower. Ordinarily William would never have entered the locker room, but when he was alerted to the problem he just stuck his head in the door & asked everyone to move to where he wouldn't see them. No problem.

If there was such a strict rule at this place that the guy was made to feel he couldn't break it, the place is at fault. I can't imagine NOT breaking the rule if the situation were reversed & I were the employee.

I agree with you Susan. This was a time where it's okay to break the rules.

Exactly. I think it would be unconscionable not to.

I'm assuming that he was aware she was in trouble? If that's the case than its absolutely stupid not to let him in.

Did he know the woman was in distress?
