An ex-con shocked everyone recently when he offered to give the shirt off of his back to help a man in need.
Aaron Tucker, 32, was traveling by bus in Connecticut to a job interview when he saw an overturned car and a man trapped inside, screaming for help.
The former prisoner asked the bus driver to stop to see if he could help the man.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Tucker, who lives in a halfway house in Bridgeport, pulled the victim from the car, took off his shirt and used it as a tourniquet to stop the injured man’s bleeding.
His heroic actions, however, caused him to miss a job interview he had scheduled at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Stamford, where Tucker had applied to be a bus boy.
He had recently been released from jail on a firearms charge, and was excited to get back to a normal life and provide for his family, including a 21-month-old son.
Tucker said he didn’t think twice about helping the man.
“I got up around 5 o’clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview,” Tucker told the New York Daily News.
“It didn’t go through my head, because a job can come and go, but a life is only one time,” he said. “The only thing running through my head is that person in the car could pass away and I could help him.”
In response, a GoFundMe page has been created to try and help Tucker get back on his feet.
