You're at the hospital visiting a friend. As you're heading towards the elevator right after, you hear a PSST...OVER HERE. You follow the voice and it's an old man confined to a bed, extensively hooked up to what looks like life support machines. "The orderlies have stolen everything from me except a gold ring embedded with a diamond hidden in the hand lotion by my bed. It's yours if you give me that pair of scissors over there so I can cut the cable to this goddamn machine. I'm in so much pain. Complete agony all day long. I can't sleep. My kids are from one of those kooky religions that doesn't believe in medicine and they won't let the doctors give me painkillers. My grandkids' only interest in me right now is getting a Power of Attorney to rework my will and they're already squabbling over my money. I just want to die. Please help me". What do you do?
Edit: the ring is probably worth a few thousand, considering the price of gold and the quality of the diamond
