Imagine you are a doctor at a top hospital.
You have six gravely ill patients, five of whom are in urgent need of organ transplants. You can’t help them, though, because there are no available organs. They will die without an immediate organ transplant.
The sixth patient, however, will die without a particular medicine. If s/he dies, you will be able to save the other five patients by using the organs of patient 6, who is an organ donor. What do you do?
