Default Need help with homework

I have a homework assignment which requires me to ask people a poll question and get their responses. So, here's the question: Why do people desire to save others whom they do not know?
Thanks alot for your time.

Perhaps they were once in a similar situation, and were saved themselves. Compassion for strangers is a very powerfull feeling. It may compell a person to risk thier life, even for a stranger.
