Ex-Prisoner Misses Job Interview to Save Car Crash Victim

Ex-Prisoner Misses Job Interview to Save Car Crash Victim

Aaron Tucker was giddy with excitement when he landed a job interview for a bus boy position - but he never made it to the interview.

Tucker helped save a man from a burning vehicle in Westport.

The New York Daily News reports that 32-year-old Aaron Tucker was on a bus headed toward a job interview in Stanford, Connecticut, when he saw a auto that had flipped over and had smoke pouring out of it just ahead of the bus.

He tells WABC-TV it was "the right thing" to do.

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

Tucker may have lost the job he was to have interviewed for, but the publicity over his actions at the accident scene brought three new and better job offers.

The New York Daily News reports: "I got up around 5 o'clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview".

"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.

Without wasting time, he removed the shirt that he had been given for the occasion of the interview, and used it to stop the blood gushing out from the victim's head.

Tucker, who is now living in a half-way house having served half of a 22-month sentence for a weapons charge, has since received several job offers.

An ambulance arrived and took the man to Norwalk Hospital where he is in stable condition. "The only thing running through my head is that person in the vehicle could pass away, and I could help him", Tucker said.

Now a Westporter is working to show Tucker thanks; she created an online fundraiser to support him and his almost 2-year-old son.
