I had the guy throw the switch to take out one only.
Person was in unique and rare situation.
Person had little if any time to think pros or cons.
Person had to thus use simple logic to justify what they did, eg. basic principles to justify decision.
Person would choose fewer deaths over more deaths.
Person could choose to do nothing too but that is worse outcome than doing something.
Person being killed had back turned and would not see it coming anyways.
Best choice is decision that can be best defended.
