Everybody claims they would help somebody who needed help; research shows people would intervene 9 times out of 10 to assist a victim. I’m skeptical!

Example of Bystander Apathy, @agrainofsalt

What if you saw somebody who needed help? Would you stop to help them? We all would like to think we’re the model citizen and would help a fellow citizen in distress but that isn’t always the case.
