GoFundMe Page Set Up for Hero Aaron Tucker

UPDATE A GoFundMe page has been set up for Aaron Tucker, the Bridgeport man who was among rescuers of a crash victim Wednesday on Post Road East.

So far, it has raised more than $59,000 in thank you donations for the 32-year-old who jumped off a bus where he was headed for a job interview and used his shirt as a bandage on the driver’s head.

Westporter Karin Dale decided to set up the GoFundMe page late Thursday as she was running out to a birthday dinner. “Obviously, I wasn’t expecting this response,” she said. “I thought it would be just a few people from the Facebook group in Westport.”

Dale spoke to Tucker today by phone. “He’s really overwhelmed,” she said. “We talked about his plans for the money, and I told him I would help him with it. We’re going to set up bank accounts for him and a 529 for his son. He’s determined to make good use of it.”
