A man in Connecticut in the US missed his job interview to save a car crash victim. The 32-year-old Good Samaritan, Aaron Tucker, was in a bus going to the interview when he saw an overturned car along a street. Tucker, who is an ex-convict, asked the bus driver to stop so he could save the driver who was trapped in the overturned car. 

He pulled the driver out, took off his own shirt and used it to stop the driver's bleeding. Consequently, Tucker ended up missing his interview. Speaking to a local news outlet, he said he did not regret it. 

He said: "It didn’t go through my head, because a job can come and go, but a life is only one time. The only thing running through my head is that person in the car could pass away and I could help him." 

When his selfless act came to light, members of the public fundraised $6,000 online for his benefit. He is a father of one son who lives with his mother.
