Five mortally ill patients in need of organ transplants are in care at a hospital, all of whom will soon die. At the same time, a sixth man has a routine checkup at the same hospital.

All patients are the same age, and of good moral standing. What do?
An out of control train is heading for 5 people. You can divert the train so that it hits 1 other person who would have been safe otherwise. All parties are innocent and are not to blame for the situation.
