Taylor Winston Is OB's Hero of the Las Vegas Massacre

Woman rushes Las Vegas shooting victims to hospital in her pick-up truck

In that spirit, he stole a pickup truck, gathered up more than two dozen victims of sniper fire Sunday night, and drove them to a hospital, one of many stories of bravery to emerge from the Las Vegas shooting.

The Route 91 Harvest country music festival became the scene of the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock sprayed a crowd of 22,000 with automatic gunfire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino before turning a gun on himself. Fifty-nine people died and more than 500 were injured.

"We went back into the gunfire and started looking for priority victims, people with the most serious injuries to get to the hospital". "It was just shooting fish in a barrel". Finding a nearby truck with the keys still in the ignition, Winston and a friend, Jenn Lewis, transformed the truck into an ad hoc ambulance and ferried as many as two dozen wounded attendees to the hospital during two trips, according to the Daily Beast.

"I transported probably 20 to 30 people injured to the hospital", Winston said.

Winston said he returned the truck's keys to the owner on Monday night and said he does not want to be praised for his actions as he did the right thing to do at that moment.

The Live-Action Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Is Speeding Up Once Again
With his experience in animation, there might be some hope in this movie, despite the poor reputation of video game adaptations. Sonic uses his stature as world's fastest hedgehog to move at supersonic speed to protect his friends from their enemies.

"People started scattering and screaming and that's when we knew something real was happening", Winston told CBS This Morning. We wanted to go back to help more people. Of course, the people he helped and loaded into that truck would say otherwise.

Winston, who joined the Marines at age 17, served two tours in Iraq before being honorably discharged as a sergeant in 2011.

"I think a lot of my training in the military helped me in the situation", he added.

"There's a lot of unsung heroes that day that stood up and helped people", he said.

The vet said they ran for cover and hopped a fence to get to safety. They wanted to go back and pick up more but Padgett got a call from her scared cousin who was also at the concert with other family members. While he doesn't know which of his passengers survived, he feels confident that his decision made a difference. "I can't be for certain", he said.
