Question

Okay, here is a queschen.. This is not a trick question, just a standard ethics question.

You see six men at work on a railway track. And you see a train approaching, and since the workers have their back turned towards the oncoming train the poor guys have no sense of the impending danger. You see a leaver. You can pull the leaver to divert the train to another track, where there is another worker who will obviously die. What would you do?
a. Do nothing
b. Pull the leaver and save six people at the expense of one


Here is another situation:
You see six men at work on a railway track. And you see a train approaching them, and since they have their back turned towards the oncoming train the poor guys have no sense of the impending danger. Now instead of the leaver, you see a fat guy. You could push the guy on to the track and block the train and save the six men (let us assume that theoretical possibility). What would you do?
a. Do nothing
b. Kill the fat guy to save the six people
