WWJD or WWYD: The WYSIWYG Edition *Strike A Pose*

Read the below situation carefully, based on your religious beliefs, your moral code, your brain wiring-- when presented with the below options, what would you do?

You're in Washington DC...
There is chaos around you, caused by a hurricane and severe and unusual floods. This is a flood of major proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper caught in the middle of this great disaster.
The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water.
Nature is showing all its' destructive fury. You see a man in the Potomac River!
He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away with the water and debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar. Suddenly, you know who it is... it's George Bush.
At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under, forever.
You have two options:
You can save him or you can take the most dramatic photos of your life. You can save the life of President George Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's powerful men.

Now, here's the question (please give an honest answer):

Would you select color film, or rather go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
