so, you are on foot up a mountain and a blizzard starts. You are with one man with a bullet in his chest and a brother who has collapse from the effortof helping to carry the other man down the mountain. You cant take both down. If you leave either one, they will most surely die.
…the golden hour rule says the bro with the bullet isn’t going to stand a fair chance even if you get him off the mountain, yet the collapsed bro has to possibly live with the regret of accidentally shooting and ultimately killing his brother…quite the dilemma…
Easy answer here…SCREW THEM both I’m outta there . If yer talking about my actual real brother well basically I’ve disowned the prick anyways and haven’t talked or had any contact with him in over 2 years . So basically I’m certainly not going to bother saving someone who I have no use for , brother or no brother he is still a dick . As for the other guy ? the guy who my dopey brother shot ? well if he’s got a bullet hole in his chest he’s probably done like dinner anyway and wouldn’t make it regardless…so bye bye to him as well . My dickhead of a brother can stick around and keep him company , good luck to them both . The buzzards can pick their sorry arse carcasses clean for all I care as I said earlier I’m outta there .
not me, it was Peter Falk in Wagon Train. He made two decisions. First he chose his brother, which I think most would. Then he chose to try to strangle the other guy as a mercy killing so he wouldn’t suffer.
I myself could not make either decision. I think I would freeze and do neither, or is it do neither and freeze. If I could, I would try to find someway of keeping them both alive until brothers gets his strength back. That would require someway to shelter them and some way to start a good fire.
The second option I might do is try to find someway to drag them both down the mountain, even though it would probably be doomed to fail.
Not to get religious, but I would do a hell of a lot of praying the whole time.
What an idiot father. 1st he takes a 6 and 7 year old out fishing in the wilderness and gets lost. 2nd HE LEAVES THEM !!! He’s very lucky they were smarter than him and listened and stayed put. Most kids would not, especially when they are scared…Why didn’t he get a fire going and stay with them or couldn’t his smart phone describe to him how to make a fire ? This guy is a moron from the get-go.
…yep Dan, not a wise decision…every rescue agency in the land will tell you to sit tight and the professionals will find you eventually…what if he injured himself during his climb out? now he’d be injured and alone and his kids would be even more at risk…
