Isn't this what got Seinfeld in trouble?Yes, you are probably correct that this might just be a French thing, it is a concept that we are taught in France and I believe might be derived from the following law
The translation would be as follows :
"Anyone who can prevent by his immediate action, without risk to him or to third parties, either a crime or an offence against the bodily integrity of the person voluntarily refrains from doing so is punishable by five years' imprisonment and a fine of 75,000 euros. The same penalties shall be imposed on anyone who voluntarily fails to provide a person in danger with the assistance which, without risk to him or to third parties, he could lend him either by his personal action or by provoking assistance."
It's not just related to diving, it's basically applicable to any circumstance.
