What would YOU do?

Ok, time for a little "what would you do?"

Here's the scenario:

You're walking through a mall parking lot with your SO/DH/DW and one child. All of a sudden you hear the squeal of tires. You look up and see a van racing toward you. You have to make a decision quickly. You know for a fact that one of you is going to be hit. What do you do?

  1. You grab you child and run, leaving SO/DH/DW to fend for him/herself.
  2. You grab your child and thrust him/her into so/dh/dw arms, push both of them out of the way, and prepare yourself for an impact.
  3. You grab so/dh/dw and run, leaving your child behind.
  4. You decided to close your eyes and allow all 3 of you to be hit.

There is no other option. You absolutely cannot save all 3 of you.

1. My dh is huge. He'd take the hit for us and have a better chance of survival.
