    Quiet Possible, depends. If I feel like helping at that moment I will definitely.

    Yes, I would! It not about being a hero, but rather doing what is right! Often times we might be the last chance that anybody would have to be saved.

    Dependent on the circumstances - of course.. without hesitation.
    I have rescued several strangers who have got caught in rips when I surfed.  I certainly am not one to stand and watch someone die or burn... though I know there are many that would ask for film rights!

    What about You - Stranger?

    It honestly would depend on the situation. If I was put into the situation where I knew a stranger was at risk, I would put myself in front of harms way or at least do "something" about it.

    The truth is however, we're human beings and we all make mistakes. So the only answer I'd have to that would be a 50/50 chance depending on what type of personality the individual has.

    I personally, would risk my life if the circumstances meant I had to do so.

    I probably would. But it depends really on the situation.

    No and anyone who answers yes is a liar. Maybe you would if it was spur of the moment and you didn't have time to think about it. If you had time to think and let it set in that "hey I could die here, this is going to be 50/50" then NO WAY

    It would depend greatly on the circomstance.  Would I go to a hospital and volunteer a kidney to anyone who needs it? No, but I would probably go into a burning building, or push someone away from a car.  Both of those are risking my life.

    Like Pearldiver said, there are lots of circumstances involved.  I'd have to say that if the stranger were a child, then there is no question-it is an adult's duty to defend a child.
