Would you help someone who fell down? An interesting social experiment.

If someone fell down on the street would you jump to help that person? How about if the person would not be well dressed? Everyone’s instinct would be to say that of course we would help that person, you never know when it would happen to you.

However an experiment on the streets of Paris showed that actually people do care about appearances and would help only someone who looks OK.
