Veteran who helped Las Vegas shooting victims to receive free truck

Gilbert dealership gives free truck to veteran who saved dozens during Vegas shooting

One of many fearless people who jumped into action during a recent mass shooting in Las Vegas is Taylor Winston, a 29-year-old retired Marine who stole a work truck on the concert grounds and used it to drive dozens of shooting victims to the hospital that night. He's planning on selling his current truck and donating the money to the victims of the massacre.

It added: "We would like to find Taylor and thank him for his bravery by providing him a free truck from B5 Motors".

During the event, the dealership owner handed Winston the keys as the small crowd of journalists and spectators applauded.

"It's very, very courageous what he did", Beus said. He said despite knowing nothing else about Winston, he was impressed by his heroic actions and wanted to give back somehow. "He was willing to risk his life and run back into the storm and help out".

After getting to safety Winston and his friend looked for ways to help those still in danger.

"I saw a field with a bunch of white trucks", Winston said.

"First one we tried opening had keys sitting right there". Winston has said he is not sure how many people he dropped off at the hospital survived, but he is confident that his actions saved lives.

"There are just so many people out there like me in our community, and, I'm sure, across America, that would do the same", he said. He made two trips before ambulances arrived on scene, CBS reported.

Winston's response to the generous gift is exactly what you'd expect from someone who's served.

Winston told KGTV, "There's a lot of unsung heroes that day that stood up and helped people".
