After the bus driver refused to help, Tucker says he got off the bus and ran to help the 61-year-old driver.

Aaron Tucker from Bridgeport was on a bus in Westport when he noticed an overturned vehicle on the Post Road that was smoking.

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

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

Consequently, Tucker ended up missing his interview.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for Tucker's benefit as a result of his efforts to save a stranger despite needing to get to a job interview.

The New York Daily News reports: "I got up around 5 o'clock in the morning because I was so excited for the interview". However, the bus driver was unfazed by the smoking vehicle and by Tucker's insistence to help. "I told him to open his eyes; I said, 'your family wants you, '" Tucker told the paper.

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.

Some infiltration bids have already taken place in these sectors in the past few weeks but the situation is manageable. The operations will be a sustained one to negate the strategic advantage to them in terms of time and space.

As word spread of Tucker's selfless actions, the Westport community rallied around him.

"He kept shutting his eyes, and I made sure he stayed awake".

Emergency crews responded and took the man to the hospital, where he is in stable condition, according to the Westport News. "I saw a lot of smoke coming from the auto and I just jumped off the bus and ran to the vehicle".

The hero said he was sad to miss his job interview, but "a life is only one time".

As of Friday, it had raised more than $3,000 of a $10,000 goal.

A GoFundMe page was created to help Tucker. 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.

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.

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