Ex-Con Misses Job Interview to Help Crash Victim

Days after Aaron Tucker was released from prison, he landed a job interview. And when he was on the bus headed to the interview, the Bridgeport, Connecticut man witnessed a car hit a tree and flip over.

The driver stopped and Tucker asked if he was going to help, but he explained he had to stick to his route. So Tucker jumped off the bus and ran over to help the driver, pulling him from the car that was upside down and smoking. The driver was bleeding from the head, but Tucker got him out before the car burst into flames and stayed with him until EMTs arrived.

Tucker missed his job interview, but when the community heard about his selfless act, they wanted to help him out. Someone set up a GoFundMe page for him and it’s raised over $49,000 so far! Someone else offered him a tailored suit for future interviews and the job offers are rolling in.

"I feel like a job can come and go, but a life is one time thing," Tucker said. "The job just wasn't in my mind at that time."
