Would you save your family or 10,000 people. Why?

Assuming we can overlook the obvious 'can't really know until it actually happens to me' response--
10,000 is the bigger number. My family's just not that big! And within that number is a bunch of other families who feel as strongly about their family as I do about my family (probably stronger for some). So I have to look at this objectively instead of subjectively.
this will sound kind of selfish but hear me out a moment.
I'm saving my family. I know that whole thing of the needs of the many or whatever but I've been by myself most of my life. I'd save my mom primarily. Given a choice in the matter I'd give my life for my mom because that's what/who I know.
I'm a realist...I don't believe ideology plays into it.
I'm like this: I'll save who I can/when I can given my means. And given a choice in the matter it would have to be my mom's life over 10K people I don't know.
I know it's a messed up choice though but it's what would be my response.
Id save my mom.
Even now, given the chance to do that I would without a second thought cause my Mom means that much to me.
but yeah those are just my thoughts on the matter.
