The suit will come in handy, as job offers have started rolling in since Tucker's story was shared. He sprung into action even though he was on the way to an interview for a job as a bus boy at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Stamford to help support his 21-month-old son, writes the New York Daily News.

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

He said he left the house at around 9 a.m. and hopped on a packed bus.

"I looked up and saw a auto flipped over right in front of the bus, so I ran to try to jump out of the bus", Aaron Tucker told the Daily News. "I said, 'Your family wants you, '" Tucker told the Daily News.

He approached the vehicle from the passenger's side so that he could unbuckle the driver's seatbelt and remove him from the overturned auto.

"I just wanted to make sure he was all right, and that's what I did". "I had to take the bus from the bus terminal in Bridgeport", he told News 12.

"No, but if you get out I'm going to leave", the driver replied, explaining that he had to stick to his route.

An ambulance arrived and the victim was taken to a hospital, where his condition was reported to be stable. Before he rushed to aid of the vehicle 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".

The hero said he was sad to miss his job interview, but "a life is only one time. The only thing running through my head is that person in the vehicle could pass away, and I could help him", Tucker said.

She explained that Westporters have stepped up to help Tucker as well as others in the halfway house, volunteering to aid the men with resume writing and job preparation as well as donating business clothes. A GoFundMe page had raised more than $27,000 as of Saturday afternoon.

Still, Tucker remains humble and brushes off the praise.

"I've been given a lot of job offers", Tucker said. "It's just about me saving his life", he said. Tucker served half of a 22-month sentence for a weapons charge and is now trying to get steady work so that he can provide for his young son.

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 came out here with nothing, literally nothing", Tucker said.
