Trolley problem

From Wikipedia, transportation and philosophy: The Trolley Problem in honor of the late Philippa Foot.

A trolley is running out of control down a track. In its path are five people who have been tied to the track by a mad philosopher. Fortunately, you could flip a switch, which will lead the trolley down a different track to safety. Unfortunately, there is a single person tied to that track. Should you flip the switch or do nothing?
