A small child i drowning in a very deep sea, and you’re the only one who’s there to rescue him!
You, can’t swim, you have no idea who the child belongs to and you’ve never seen it before.
Even though you cannot swim, the child is only a few metres out in the water.
You also, have a phone but it’ll take some minutes for the rescue team to show up.

morale question.

I´ll jump into the water and try to rescue the child, if I suceed I´m a good person, if I die trying, I´ll get into heaven for this selfless action. ( or at least some Bonuspoints ;)

You see it´s a win-win situation, as long as you are no atheist or satanist :P

Hmm. I’d jump in the water. It’s only a couple meters, right? Anyone can doggy paddle a couple meters. Not only does it seem easy, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t stand by and watch a child drown by my own inaction.

The Original First Law of Robotics binds me to it!

How high up is the ship I’m standing on?

It’s not the water I’m afraid of, I can swim, but the fall scares me. =O

And if I couldn’t swim, I’d just get a lifeboat. =P

Well, I CAN swim so yeah. >.>

But if I couldn’t I probably would look at my surroundings and see what I can use. If there’s a boat, use that. If there’s a life preserver, use that. If there’s a pole long enough to save him, use that. If there’s only small poles, find rope or some kind of substitute to I can lash them together. If worse comes, I would just call and wait. For those of you jumping in, it’s a foolish decision. A human can live about an hour even with them not breathing. That’s because the body temporarily shuts down (when your drown) so it needs less oxygen. Since it only takes a few minutes for rescue units to arrive, then the boy would survive perfectly fine, I would be fine, yet I would still be the one responsible for saving his life.

First aid classes FTW. XD

and then he gets swept out to sea and a jellyfish/shark/man eating fish kills him.

but i suppose it would get you too if you jumped out

Since the topic creator gave such little detail, there’s many loopholes.

OK so it’s a.. dog child? Human beings aren’t an it. If it was a boy / girl… TO THE RESCUE!!
