Ex-Con Skips Interview Saves Man’s Life
There's a guy who just got out of jail a few weeks ago after a 22-month stint for weapons charges. While he was locked up, his first son was born. And when he heard him crying over the phone, it made him want to turn his life around. So he got his G.E.D. started tutoring other inmates and planned to get the best job he could when he got out.
So one week after he got placed in a halfway house, he woke up at 5:00 A.M. for a job interview at a barbecue joint, and took a bus. But, according to CBS News, on his way there, he witnessed a really bad car crash. Some guy hit a tree, flipped his car, and was trapped inside. The bus driver refused to stop. So this guy got off the bus...ran to the car...found the driver covered in blood...then he pulled him out while the car started to catch fire! Then he took off the only dress shirt he had, used it as a tourniquet, and ended up skipping his interview to stay with the guy until paramedics got there. He told the local news he wasn't even thinking about the interview. He just wanted to save the guy in the car. But now because of the story, he's gotten a bunch of job offers.
Someone also set up a GoFundMe page that's already raised over 55 GRAND to help him get back on his feet. And the guy in the car crash looks like he's going to make a full recovery.
