Default Helper sacrifice his hireling to escape.

Helper sacrifice his hireling to escape. Can he decide to save main player as well?
Rules says "If someone was helping you in the fight, YOU decide..." But nothing about "If you was helping someone..."

Default Re: Helper sacrifice his hireling to escape.

Would be great to get official ruling on this with explanation.

Current wording is as follows:
A Hireling can sacrifice himself for you. If you lose a fight, then instead of rolling to run away, you may discard one Hireling and anything he is carrying. You automatically escape from all monsters in the fight, even if a monster card says escape is impossible. If someone was helping you in the fight, YOU decide whether that person automatically escapes as well, or must roll to escape.

So basically it suggests that the player whose turn the fight occured on may use the hireling to escape and he/she decides if the helper escapes as well or should roll to run away.
But the helper doesn't have a helper of their own, so according to this wording he/she can use their hireling to escape themselves but he/she can't also save the player whose turn the fight occured on.

The relationship is commutative -- if the main player can save the helper, the helper can also save the main player.
