: I'm sorry Gee but that totally disgust me. If someone feel into a lake and you where walking past would you let them drown too?

Thats not what I was sugesting, my helping him would be helping another person in trouble. If someone kept pushing passers by into the lake, rather than swim about endlessly it would seem more beneficial to deal with the pusher, and acknowledge that he causes then suffering - not you for not doing all the swimming.

Fort examples, see my other two responses.
