This is a video that actually discusses the bystander effect with a middle school assembly and explains how to beat it. One way? If you need help, don't cry out, "Someone help me!" Instead, target someone specific. "You in the baseball cap and the red sweater. Please call 911--I need help." It places the responsibility to call on one person rather than everyone in the vicinity.
