I'd introduce myself, and welcome it to planet Earth in the name of peace, ask it's name,

then ask if it has universal health insurance.

I would love to be of assistance to another beautiful soul.

I think the same way

I walk everywhere, so driving off at a rate of knots is not an option, further more, running away means I have my back turned, which is a tactical no no when dealing with any unknown. That is not because of some fear based reaction to something from outside my own understanding. Such would be the reaction of a fool. The desire to keep eyes on fills two requirements in the scenario. First, to learn as much as is possible about the life form I have encountered, it is important to have my eyes on it, so that every second of the encounter is a learning expirience. Second, if I am to help this lifeform in some way, then I need to asses its injuries, and observe the effect of any loss of vital fluids on the surroundings of the life form, to ensure that no immediately fatal, corrosive, or dangerous chemical compounds can be found in its life blood.

If the being concerned, asks for my help in a way that I would understand, then I would have to say that I would be willing to assist, but perhaps less than capable. I can splint a broken leg, stitch a flesh wound, wash a graze, and disinfect a cut. I know the recovery position, and the correct way to clear an airway. I know how to deal with a concussion. In a human. I know these things because I have had to learn them over the course of my whole life.
But being asked to assist an alien lifeform with a medical emergancy would be like asking a three year old to perform brain surgery! Unless the being was capable of delivering concise and useful instruction on how to achieve a positive outcome, I would be at a total loss. Even splinting a broken bone would be quite difficult I would imagine, due to differences in bone density, construction, and even differences in the immune response of the creature involved. It would be a nightmare trying to get the poor chap back on his feet.

Obviously, if the being had merely fallen over due to his injuries, and dropped his communication device somewhere, with which he could call in medical support to his location, then obviously I would go looking for it in a heart beat, but attempting to deal with a medical emergancy in an unfamiliar setting like that would be a no no even for a seasoned professional doctor! I am just a bloke! Sure I can deal with the minor stuff as well as the next fellow, but something that would incapacitate a being from another world would surely require expertise not available here on Earth (unless of course the human race has been lied to alot, but I digress).

What I would NOT do, is call an ambulance, the police, the military or any other government department. The reason for this, is that if I am to believe that the human race has never officially welcomed this speices onto our planet, the creature might be treated as an infiltrator, which would not get it the medical attention it might need.It would however cause it to be locked up in some box and left to die or worse however, so that option is right out the window, due to just how unacceptable that idea is.

If the emergancy being suffered by the life form was of a non threatening, or non medical nature, I would of course do my best to assist it, offering directions or escort to a given location for instance, or a hand lugging equipment. I would be proud to help a member of another species, and be given the oppertunity to present a positive image of our planets inhabitants. Also, I have never been one to agree with the old phrase, better the devil you know. I think that phrase is some sarcastic nod to the status quo, which has never been a good way for the the human race to go about its business. If I get eaten by a space monster because I was trying to be a decent guy, thats fine by me. But if a visiting species copped it, or found our species to be unhelpful, fearful and xenophobic, purely on its contact with me as a person, I would be bloody mortified and sick with grief, and probably top myself anyway!

I would ask him if their was a shiny green ring and an intergalactic police officer position in it for me if I helped them.

But on a serious note unless he has a healing beam at his ship or home base he is a goner. Helping wouldn't be worth the trouble because so many things can go wrong. For instance:

1) If he is bleeding out and injured his blood could be toxic to me.... then we will both be dead. I could catch a nasty virus from him/her.

2) Where would I take him?

If I took him to a hospital he would be as good as dead because a, no doctor is going to know about alien physiology and when the government is notified some government organization may take him away to experiment on him. I wouldn't put it past the government to kill me and the doctors and claimed that the alien killed us to cover things up.

If I took him to his ship to get his healing ray/station I may be trapped on the ship and I would be taken along as a light snack or he may kill me to cover his tracks or he will allow me to be a personal slave.

3) He could regenerate by eating humans? He could be like (Alien): help me come closer so I can tell you what to do... (Me): Okay... herp derp (Alien): chomp nom nom nom nom brains give me the strength to live muah ha ha ha.

4) Say I try to help him/her... he/she dies while I am trying to give medical attention and his/her friends arrive on the scene. An awkward moment ensues.... they think I killed the guy and then boom... I'm dead.

5) He could be injured because government agents were chasing him.... I lean down to help him out and boom.... bullet to the brain... dead men tell no tales... conspiracy covered up.

6) He could be injured from another alien... maybe a friend who thought he was weak and too nice to humans... maybe he is an intergalactic prisoner that escaped a crashed prison transport... maybe he was injured by an alien assassin or an enemy from some kind of secret war.... when they catch up to us chances are he will be finished and so will I.

Case and point... Helping may be more trouble then it is worth. I can think of dozens of scenarios in which me getting involved will end badly for me. To many unknowns. I would walk in the opposite direction. I hate to sound xenophobic but the situation is tough... another human I would help but a alien entity that hasn't made it's presence known to the world I would be a little cautious of.

Hopefully he/she wouldn't be the decider testing me to see whether our species is worth saving or something. Form my years reading about this subject. The reptilians are deceitful and their primary agenda is to harvest us for food and experiments... For all we know we are a human farm planet waiting to be fully processed in queue.

I may snap some photos and shoot videos with my iphone

Take a few pics then immediately upload to FB, ATS and various other sites. I'll make various copies in an instant and send it to everyone in my contacts list....PROOF can't be ask for then esp if I'm in the pic! lol

I would then take care of it myself then let it go, only if it was nice and didn't try and eat me

I would always try and help if it were a friendly being. I kind of like the idea of reptilians lol but I am a huge reptile fan so that could be it.

I couldn't just leave it to die..The first thing id do is check around and make sure its alone id hate for more to be hiding in the bushes..If it was safe id cover it up with a blanket and bring it home and try to bond with my new friend..
I wouldn't tell the evil government that i have this 10 ft tall reptilian id ask him what to put on his wounds and if they should be covered and of course id were gloves if IM still alive means he likes me..
Then id contact the newspaper to come and take pictures of my new best friend id let them know im just a normal person that got caught up in an extraordinary experience ..
Then id find a doctor that would come out to help my reptilian friend at my home and if there was anyway id help him to return to his home planet..

And then the military will raid your house and take it into captivity if ti doesn't bite your head off first...

I agree with this guy. Nobody has to know

...well, except maybe your grandkids. It's not like they'll believe anything you say anyways in your senile years.

"Grandpa talkin' about that time he ran over that alien and ate it for breakfast?"
"Yeah, that old bastard sure smoked a lot of weird stuff back in the day"
"Oh well, let's go play some Xbox 1080 while talking on our iPhone 37s"

I'm going with TheOneElectric's answer. I am all about keeping that guilt level down, no matter what. Do not mean that sarcastically either. After all you have to be able to live with yourself, right? I could not pass anything wounded asking for help. Besides it is probably someone from ATS.

How could you not help out a fellow being? If it were a dog or a dolphin or whale, wouldnt you try and help it out?
And by helping out instead of hurting it, who knows what it will lead to in the future? I am thinking of the story about the lion who had a sticker in his paw and someone took it out and the lion never forgot about that act of kindness.
So much good can happen if we were to put our fear aside and help rather than turning him into a bbq meal as one person said.

What if it was a test, to see if mankind was enlightened enough to join the galactic community, and those that said, eff em, run it over, kill it, would have blown it and failed
Personally, I would do what I can to assist until his fellow reps assived

and by alien I'm talking about a 10 ft tall reptilian that was wounded, it was on a long desolate road with trees all around and it pleaded to you for aid. would you help it or run/drive away.

If I noticed ANY creature, this creature of topic being a Universal (CREATED) Energy version -Reptilian- that was giving off TRUE vibrations of being hurt I would try to assess the situation as fast as I can, keeping in mind the creature may be near death and also what may have caused it. (was it in a battle of some kind EA*RTH related or was it wounded in space 1 would process why assessing the situation) I say giving off TRUE VIBRATIONS for the vibrations given off by some creatures SIGNALING that they are HURT can also be intentionally given off to lure another Universal (CREATED) Energy into reach of it to harm it. With that I would try to make the best decision, for me coming in contact with it may be toxic and more harm causing to the creature so I don't know if a direct approach would be safe for it and I.

If I picked up some type of telepathic signals that I could decipher of it explaining what happened due to it sensing my minds thoughts questions then I may approach the situation a little faster. I don't however feel its the best thing to immediately allow close contact for infection reasons from me to it or it to me.

As far as who to contact this is where things CAN get tricky??! For If I just called local medical assistance and they broadcasted it 1 would assume the SITE would be intercepted by some (blk) ops type forces. How would they treat 1 from that point on or would the try to hush 1 by placing an attempted death judgment on me for just being in the area? This is why I say its tricky here because you as a civilian may feel EMPATHY for the creature and try to help it but some may come and EXTRACT it for scientific studies or even some kind of cosmic court and take you also for seeing it and being exposed to it.

So what do you really do try to help? Knowing by doing so its a risk of it not understanding you wanting to help and may cause you harm why trying to help it. Further it may intentionally want to harm you for tissue rejuvenation or other agenda and you being IGNORANT to the existence of its KIND may fall victim. So do you call for a more professional help also knowing its a risk of YOU being apprehended due to exposure and that those who take it may harm it or destroy it and you for exposure for scientific study. Or do you try to assist it with what materials you may have present in a medi kit from a safe distance and HOPE your intents to HELP it worked out for the better and it got saved by your hand and not worst off due to your ignorance on their existence and body make up so you performed accidental harm why trying to help..

I guess the situation would have to be in EXPERIENCE mode to get an accurate answer OP. Interesting question /observation SnF
