Suppose a train you can't stop is heading down the track toward 5 people who are tied to the tracks. There is a lever which will let you divert the train onto a another track. However, 1 person is tied to this track and will get run over if you do this.
There is no way out and no other ways for you to save anyone. No one else knows about this and no one else will come to help. Do you pull the lever?
Pulling the lever saves 5 but dooms 1.
Doing nothing does not kill the 1 but leave 5 to their fate.
Which do you choose?

Pull the lever.

Unless the single person is a loved one.

Message the conductor to put the train in reverse.

If not, message the conductor to move to the second car, decouple from the main one, then destroy it.

Put myself down on the tracks as friction. The name of the game is someone dies right? I pick this.
