In the other train example, if you press the button 5 lives are being saved, in this example one person dies regardless. I would not take the life of an innocent man who was otherwise not going to die simply to save the baby....

That's why I think it's closer @ least, I hope I did a reasonable job explaining it....
I must be missing something here because as far as i can see, its a choice between sending a man who is 40 yrs closer to the grave than the baby to his demise.

No it isn't. You are actually killing a man who wouldn't otherwise die.
If a kid needs an organ transplante you don't just kill older people to remove their organs, right?
