Unemployed man, 32, misses job interview to save auto crash victim

Though the bus driver told Tucker he would leave without him if he got off the bus, Tucker got off anyway and played a major role in aiding two other bystanders who worked across the street to pull the driver from the smoking vehicle and begin treating him until emergency personnel arrived, people at the scene said.

Tucker spotted the vehicle and immediately asked the bus driver to stop so he could help the driver who was trapped in his smoldering auto.

Aaron Tucker, a 34-year-old ex-con, left a bus on the way to a job interview to help rescue a man who had rolled his auto on the street.

He says his job interview was far from his thoughts as he rescued the man.

While Tucker obviously didn't land the bus boy job, he has since received three other job offers in Westport. "I had to take the bus from the bus terminal in Bridgeport", he told News 12.

"I said I was going to help him, and asked the driver if he was going to wait for me and he said, 'No, I am going to leave you, '" Tucker said.

According to the Newsone, Tucker removed his shirt when he saw the driver bleeding from his head.

An ambulance arrived and the victim was taken to a hospital, where his condition was reported to be stable. "The only thing running through my head is that person in the vehicle could pass away and I could help him".

What's more, the community of Westboro, Connecticut has created a GoFundMe page on Tucker's behalf that is looking to raise $25,000 for him to thank him for saving the driver's life. It is only after the victim was tended to that Tucker realized that he was too late to show up for the interview, a job that he badly needed to be a better father to his 21-month-old son, who lives with the mother. "It's just about me saving his life", he said.

It's alright to hear people saying i'm a hero. A GoFundMe campaign created by the community has also raised nearly $14,000 in recognition of the man's compassion.

"What I have found unbelievable about his is it's just not about Aaron anymore", Dale said.
