Heroic Veteran Steals Truck, Takes Vegas Shooting Victims To Hospital

Heroic Veteran Steals Truck, Takes Vegas Shooting Victims To Hospital”

People carry a person at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival after a mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017.

She said: "'Then everyone starts yelling, 'Get on the ground! get on the ground!"

"The shots got louder and louder, closer to us and saw people getting hit, it was like we could be hit at any second".

Winston, who returned the truck's keys to the owner Monday night, said he doesn't want to be hailed a hero for doing the right thing. "We're just all on top of each other on the floor huddling together looking at each other not sure what to do", adding that when people "finally started running", they kept going until they made it inside a nearby airport hangar.

ABC News reported that Lindsay Padgett, 29, ran to get her truck with her fiancé, Mike Jay, as soon as the sounds of the gunshots subsided.

Several people were loaded into the truck and they began making their way to a local hospital.

"My heart goes out to everyone at the venue and to all my friends that did attend I'm so glad you are all ok and thank you, Taylor Winston, for jumping in and rushing people to the hospital", said Erin Charbonneau.

"Me and a friend went and got a few drinks and found our other friends near the side stage and we just kind of posted up there to watch and enjoy the concert", Winston said.

"We realized there were people everywhere that needed help and on stretchers ..."

"Once we dropped them off, we were like well, let's go back for round two and go get some more", he said.

"Put them all in the back", she replied.

A new video has surfaced in the aftermath of the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas Sunday, showing people helping one another in the midst of chaos. Paramedics who took him out the back told her he later died. Winston told people to apply pressure to the wounds, as he sped to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center, wanting to get people there "before they bled out". Among the other victims in her truck, Padgett said another man suffered a bullet to the chest and one girl had been shot in the leg.

They then left to check on her family members who were also at the concert, she said.

"My cousin was locked inside the MGM and they heard screaming, so we went there to get my cousin and my family", Padgett said.
