Aaron Tucker was on his way to a job interview for a bus boy position but unfortunately, he never made it in time. However the reason he missed his interview will blow your mind.
While he was on the way to the restaurant he had applied to work at, Tucker noticed something was wrong and got off the bus. But let’s take a step back. Tucker was in the middle of a job hunt after completing a 22-month prison sentence.
Tucker had been charged with possession of weapons, but he had done his time and was ready to turn his life around. The ex-convict was determined to start over, build his income and provide for his 2-year-old boy.
Tucker was ecstatic when he got call back from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Stamford, Connecticut. They asked him to drop by for an interview. But while he was on his way to his interview, Tucker stopped and noticed something extraordinary. A car was turned upside down and smoking in the middle of the street.
While he was on his way to his interview, Tucker stopped and noticed something extraordinary. A car was turned upside down and smoking in the middle of the street.Determined to get off the bus and help the victims, Tucker asked the bus driver to stop so he could inspect the damage. But the driver declined.
Tucker had a tough decision to make: he could either miss his interview and attend to the accident or stay on the bus and regret not having helped. But the man needed to know that the victims were OK, so he jumped off the bus and sprinted over to the car. What he found was horrific – a 61-year-old who had a huge cut on his head.
Tucker was shocked but determined to save the man. And in the ultimate act of selflessness, Tucker helped the injured man out of the car, took his shirt off that he was given for the interview and wrapped it around his head to stop the bleeding. Then he waited for the ambulance to come and take the man.
Unfortunately, Tucker didn’t get another chance to interview at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. But since then, the father has received job offers elsewhere in light of his heroic efforts. The local community in Westport also started a GoFundMe campaign in honor of the Tucker’s vigilance. The campaign has raised $14,000 so far.
