The trolley problem variation

A runaway trolley with explosive is heading down the tracks toward a building dam, if the trolley hitting on the building dam,it will be dam burst, ~5000000 people will all be killed if the trolley proceeds on its present course. Adam is standing next to a large switch that can divert the trolley onto a different track. The only way to save the lives of the 5000000 is to divert the trolley onto another track that only has one worker on it. If Adam diverts the trolley onto the other track, this one worker will die, but the other 5000000 the will be saved.

Should Adam flip the switch, killing the one worker but saving the other 5000000? Vote for your answer.
