    Hi Guys,

    I really need help in answering these questions ASAP ... can help? its for my business ethics . ....

    SCENE 1:Feeling thirsty, Ann decided to go to 7-11 and wanted to quench her thirst with a bottle of Coke. In the store, she saw a small boy shoplifting , putting chocolates and gums into his windbreaker and continued doing it without feeling guilty. Ann reported to the cashier and the boy ran away, making his escape from the front door. The boy ran so fast that he did not realize there was a moving car coming from the opposite direction; he was hit and collapsed on the spot. It was a hit and run. Ann, seeing all these, ran to the boy and called for help. Ten minutes after, the ambulance arrived and brought the boy to the hospital. Ann told the ambulance personnel that she was a friend to the boy’s family. Feeling immensely guilty, she thought deeply, had she not prompted the boy, he would not have gone out of the store and got hit by,the car.
