Aaron Tucker, an ex-con who had been living in a halfway house since being released from jail, was on his way to a much-awaited job interview when he noticed a terrible car accident on the road. Instead of quietly going his way and relying on others to take action, he took the harder approach, the more heroic thing to do – get off the bus and help the victims of the accident.

The bus driver told Tucker that he would be left behind if he went off the bus but the unlikely hero decided to help just the same.

In an interview with the Westportnow.com, the ex-con shared: “I saw it and just had to help. I had to do what I had to do.”

The accident badly injured a 61-year-old man and Tucker unhesitatingly took off his new shirt and used it as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding on the man’s head.

“I got into the car and the man was bleeding badly from his head. I took off my shirt to stop the blood flow,” recalled Tucker.

Three employees from Vautrin Auto Services were also present to help but the workers stressed that Tucker was “the real hero.”

Tucker’s selfless deed touched the lives of the community that a GoFundMe campaign was created with a goal of raising $25,000 to help Aaron in starting a new life.

Apparently, Tucker has been looking for work to get his life back on track.

“I’m determined to change my life,” Aaron said. “I just want to support my son and his mother,” he added.

According to Karin Dale, a stranger who heard about Tucker’s heroism and started the fundraising campaign, “Aaron is the kind of man who should be celebrated. While others stood around and took video, he jumped into action and helped. Aaron, despite not having a father in his life as a child, is dedicated to his son, and wants to make a good life for Aaron Jr. and his mother.”
