Might be that having been in several accidents before, I tend to have a less disturbable personality.

I do not recognize the situation as life-threatening short of an incompetent crew. Therefore, whatever you say in the statement above has no application in my view. If the situation was actually life-threatening, then of course by the honor code of martial arts rescue should be attempted. The problem here is that we have different understandings of the situation and therefore have different boundaries around where we select our actions.
