Moral Dilemma: 
You are a paramedic who is a week away from marriage. During an emergency situation when your partner is out you are called to the scene of an accident. You arrive and are in shock to see your fiancé in the car. Your fiancé is badly hurt, and the only thing you can hear him/her say is "I'm very sorry," before he/she is becomes unconscious. Clueless to what he/she meant, you find another person in the passenger seat, and in the car you also notice a picture of the two of them in a very risqué position and quickly realize that your fiancé was having an affair with this person. This other person is badly hurt and will more than likely die if not given medical attention immediately. Your fiancé is in a less severe situation, but both are in dire need of medical attention and you can only save one. Who do you attend to first? Explain your reasoning.
