Summary
If you saw someone in trouble, would you be a Good Samaritan and help out?

The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible. In the story, a Samaritan helped out a stranger who had been beaten and robbed. The Samaritan went as far as to put the stranger up in an inn and pay for his lodging. Now the term us used to describe someone who unselfishly helps a stranger in need.

The day is observed on March 13th, to mark the death of Catherine “Kitty” Genovese, who was murdered near her home in Queens, New York in 1964.

The case became famous as many people heard the screams but nobody came to her aid, and this is known as the 'Bystander Effort', where we all assume someone else will be the Good Samaritan.

Recently the whole incident has been called into question, with inaccuracies in the reports of how many heard her cries for help highlighted.
