Jim McCarthy added an extra question in the comments. Here is his answer:
What do you do when you think someone needs help, but doesn’t ask for it?
I think the safest correct answer is a). You are least likely to do harm with behavior a).
However, behavior b) can sometimes be effective, and therefor correct, too, as others have pointed out.
So this means, the next best answer is c), either a or b.
Finally, d) can also be correct, especially in cases where you yourself are in harm’s way. To rescue yourself is never the wrong move. As with so many situations relevant to the Core, good judgment is ever valuable.
Perhaps it is safe to say this: when it comes to other adults (and many or even most situations involving children), a posture of general supportiveness, consisting of good will, receptivity, curiosity and a readiness to help when asked might be the most effective and beautiful basic attitude to maintain.
