The bus left the scene and Tucker missed his interview.

When Tucker asked if the driver would wait for him while he checked on the man in the overturned vehicle, the bus driver also said no.

A mere invitation to a job interview may take months... but still, Aaron Tucker, 32, made a decision to miss his one when he noticed a man in a smoke filled vehicle.

Consequently, Tucker ended up missing his interview.

Tucker ended up missing his interview, of course, but his kindhearted, and perhaps lifesaving, actions have gotten him three job offers so far, in construction and at a rubber factory.

"I got up around 5 o'clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview", Tucker told the Daily News Thursday.

"God put me there to be helpful", Tucker tells. Before he rushed to aid of the auto crash victim, Tucker asked the bus driver if he would wait for him and got back a curt reply, "No, I am going to leave you".

Tucker went to the vehicle from the passenger's side so he could unbuckle the driver's seat belt and remove him from the overturned auto.

"It didn't go through my head, because a job can come and go, but a life is only one time".

"He had a whole gash in his head, so I took my shirt off and placed it on his head to slow down the bleeding", says Tucker.

Tucker, who is living in the halfway house after serving a 22-month sentence related to a weapons charge, remains focused on a singular goal: Getting a job so that he can support his 21-month-old son, who now lives with his mother.

What's more, the community of Westboro, Connecticut has created a GoFundMe page on Tucker's behalf that is looking to raise $25,000 for him to thank him for saving the driver's life.

"All of my FB pages have been blowing up with how can I help, what can I do", Evans said. It has mostly been shared in Westport, Dale said, and town residents are now going beyond to take additional efforts to help Tucker as well as others in the halfway house where he resides.

"I just want everybody to know it's not about what people could do for me".
