As is the case with all American tragedies, everyday people stepped up to help. One of those people was Taylor Winston.

Winston, a Marine veteran who served two tours in Iraq, went to the Jason Aldean concert at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. He ran when he heard gunshots, and ended up in a nearby parking lot. Still hearing gunfire and surrounded by trucks, Winston had an idea:

“I saw a field with a bunch of white trucks. I tested my luck to see if any of them had keys in it, first one we tried opening had keys sitting right there. I started looking for people to take to the hospital.”

Winston loaded up the truck bed with injured people, and drove the makeshift ambulance to the hospital. He later made a second trip to pick up more victims. In total, Winston estimates he transported between 20 and 30 people.

Though he doesn’t know how many of those people survived, each victim he transported was able to get help sooner because of his efforts.

Winston says, “there was a lot of bravery and courageous people out there. I’m glad that I could call them my country folk.”

He returned the truck’s keys to their owner on Monday evening.
