The Bystander Effect

From Wikipedia: The bystander effect is a phenomenon that refers to cases in which individuals do not offer help to a victim. The probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders. In other words, the greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that any one of them will help.

Here's an interesting, yet scary example of an experiment where a child is being kidnapped.
