It was a special day for 32-year-old Aaron Tucker.

He was living in a Connecticut halfway house, with less than two dollars in his pocket and landed a job interview.

Tucker was interviewing for a bus boy position at Dinosaur-Bar-B-Que and told The Daily News, “I got up around 5 o’clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview.”

He got on the crowded bus, nodded off and when he woke up saw a vehicle overturned on the road. The driver kept going and wasn’t concerned.

Tucker mentioned, “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.’”

He jumped off the bus to help and arrived on the scene of the accident.

Tucker noticed that the man was bleeding from his head and didn’t think twice about taking the shirt that was donated to him to stop the man from bleeding.

He encouraged the victim to keep his eyes open and shortly the ambulance arrived where he is now in stable condition.

As for Tucker, he never made it to the interview and is determined to find work to support his son. The Westport community however made him a GoFundMe page which has raised over $3,000 for him.

Aaron Tucker is considered by many including me to be a Hero!!!
