In particular, these include situations where a person kills another, painlessly, but for no reason beyond that of personal gain; or accidental deaths that are quick and painless, but not intentional.
May 28, at 9: His legs ached his vision was blurry and his ears were still ringing from the impact of the single engine plane striking the sand bar. It was far too short for a runway of any sort, but, given the circumstance, he had no choice but to take his chances touching down on the small clearing in the thick jungle woods.
The pounding of an early summer rain fueled the fury of the jungle waters and proved the plane to be no match for its might. The mud gripped his boots and the torrential downpour made it nearly impossible for the pilot to even keep his eyes open.
He ignored the pain in his back, along with his common sense and tried to reach his old flying companion as it slowly sank sideways toward the rushing waters. The wing creaked toward the water until the edge dipped in. The river spun the little plane 90 degrees with a gushing splash as the flat wing met the merciless current.
Michael stopped in his tracks and threw up his hands. The pilot turned around slowly, his feet still sticking hard to the mud. He, like Michael, was drenched in the hot Central-American rain. His skin was brown and his hair was long and dark.
He had only a hog skin loin cloth tied around his waist and a leather strap wrapped just above his elbow. He shook his head at his own ignorance to think that the boy could understand him.
The pilot wiped the rain from his face again, with one had still up in front of him. Michael turned around and pointed again. The pilot lowered his head and placed both hands on his face. He tried to get back to his feet, but before he could get his hand out of the rain soaked dirt, the native boy had already seized him by the arm.
Confused, but relieved to still be alive, Michael nodded, stood up and wiped his muddy hands on his rain soaked shirt. The boy got behind him and pushed him toward the jungle. The boy pressed his captive onward with his his hand on his back, but he kept the spear at his own side. They marched through dense, green foliage.
The dark clouds above and the thick jungle canopy made it difficult to see, but at least they provided some reprieve from the relentless storm. After what had to be a half hour of hiking, they came upon a gathering of small huts, built out of branches, palm fronds, animal skins and various other natural resources.
The two approached the entrance of one particular hut. The ground all through the jungle was soaked with rainwater, but the floor of the hut was remarkably dry.
The ceiling was low so michael had to remain hunched over even after hunkering through the little doorway. A meager fire lit the two-person dwelling and a bed of freshly cut banana leaves made a bed on one side.
Michael turned to look at the boy, hoping that he would give him some indication of why he was there. He began to reconsider his own ethics and started formulating a plan of escape. The boy looked at Michael with angry eyes.
In fact, the more Michael looked back at him, the less he saw anger and the more he saw fear. Michael hesitated for a moment, looked at the bed and looked back at the boy.
The once fierce eyes of this native boy were now brimming with water, and it was not from the rain. He gripped his spear and breathed heavily through his nose. His lip quivered as he fought to hide his own angst. As he got closer, he thought he saw movement under the leaves.
He looked back at the boy who was now holding his spear upright in both hands, wringing it as though it may help him stay strong. Michael looked back at the bed, reached out and slowly pulled back some of the leaves. Michael looked back at the boy, then back at the baby.
The boys eyes were closed tight and he had turned away.Life or death Euthanasia arguments for and against.
