Would you step in to help someone in need?

What is the bystander effect?

The bystander effect is about the reluctance of bystanders to get involved in an emergency, including a first aid emergency.

It’s more likely to occur in situations where you might not feel so responsible for helping, such as if there are lots of other people around who are perfectly capable of helping instead.
