Dealership gives new truck to veteran who helped Las Vegas shooting victims

Dealership gives new truck to veteran who helped Las Vegas shooting victims”

B5 Motors owner Shane Beus told AZCentral that he will be given a silver Ford F-150. He plans to sell his current truck and donate the proceeds to the shooting victims.

"It's very, very courageous what he did", Beus told AZ Central.

Taylor Winston risked his life to stay behind and help those injured as bullets rained down from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Winston was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival country music concert in Las Vegas on Sunday when a gunman opened fire on the audience from a 32nd-floor window in the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 58 and injuring almost 500 in what became the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

Winston and his girlfriend Jenn Lewis looked for ways to get victims out of harms way during the shooting when they realized they couldn't fight back. That is when he saw keys in a truck in a lot near the venue and didn't hesitate to jump into action. I tested my luck to see if any of them had keys in it, first one we tried opening had keys sitting right there.

"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 loaded the victims with the most serious injuries into a pickup truck and drove them to a nearby hospital, then made two more trips, according to reports. Winston credited his military training for helping him keep a "cool head".

Winston told reporters on Monday that it's hard to accept himself as a "hero" when so many people helped the night of the attack.
