Would you risk your life even die for someone else?

Me personal i wouldn't risk my life.
People say they would but more or less most of you would be in a TZ
I am not sure but believe it is called the side-walk affect i need to check on it in a later time,

If your kids or the person you loved was in danger you wouldn't even stop to think. Strangers? Yes, probably, if you were caught up in the moment.

I live in a bushfire area and have seen it both ways. There are people who protected themselves and others who put themselves on the line to help others.

We just had a blizzard. 20+ motorists were stranded with 50 m.p.h. winds and 10F. A man got on his snowmobile bought sandwiches, water, and handwarmers. He checked every vehicle. Granted, he was not in life threatening danger, but it goes to show the lengths through which people will go to help.

Awesome!

I was impressed! (20+ vehicles not motorists. O.o). Even cooler!

That's a nice story, Happy. It's good to hear to noble side of human nature. I wonder if one of them was truckerlady?

BTW, if you haven't yet met truckerlady you might like to follow her. She has some great answers.

And hello to you, TL. It's been a while.

Happy, I believe your kind fellow may have made it on the news all the way out here in Cali. Seems I heard something about that. If it wasn't your guy, it was some other kind-hearted soul. :0)

Quite possible, ynp. People were taking pictures and videos with their phones as he rode from car to car, and semi to semi TL!

Dozy, thanks for the advice. I had forgotten that when I contacted TL about you return, I read one of the best Q&A ever!
Trucker Lady, it would be an honor to follow you. But, as I've gotten more comfortable here on ask, I've gotten a little more colorful. That color would be blue. Still modest compared to most, but fair warning. You may want to look at my last answer before following/blocking me.

Not VERY blue, though.

I actually think I might....if I wasn't traumatized by the situation, and if it didn't involve sharp things spinning really fast.

I guess it would be one of those things that you don't know until it happens

Who am I risking my life for? Family and friends? Then of course. For a complete stranger? Maybe, depending on the situation

I would give up my life for anyone. As long as there was no reason that I shouldn't. I'd even give up my life for Tyler; a guy that I hate with every bone in my body.

You may instinctively do it and have little choice in the immediate moment.

I'd put myself in dangerous and/or life-threatening situations for complete strangers.
