Heres a question for you...
A runaway trolley car is hurtling down a track where it will kill five people. You are standing on a bridge above the track and, aware of the imminent
disaster, you decide to jump on the track to block the trolley car. Although you will die, the five people will be saved.
Just before your leap, you realise that you are too light to stop the trolley. Next to you, a fat man is standing on the very edge of the bridge. He
would certainly block the trolley, although he would undoubtedly die from the impact. A small nudge and he would fall right onto the track below. No
one would ever know. Should you push him?
Well what would you do? I myself would not push him.
This question and more are here what would you do?
from a BBC site and its pretty good.
