After Las Vegas Shooting, Veteran Steals Truck & Transports Dozens To Hospital
October 4th, 2017
At the beginning of the week, our country witnessed a massive tragedy in the biggest mass shooting in Las Vegas. While many outlets continue to talk about the shooter, it's more important to recognize the heroes. The people who were on the scene as the disaster unfolded and still went above and beyond in selfless acts to make sure others were safe. We should all take time to recognize and send some appreciation to Taylor Winston. Winston attributes much of the way that he acted to his military training. After joining the Marines at 17 and serving two tours in Iraq, Winston would be honorably discharged as a Sergeant.
The video discusses all that Winston went through on the behalf of others that night and gives us insight as to exactly what was going through his head at the time. It takes a special person to run toward the gunfire to help others instead of running with the crowd.
Winston saw people who were in serious danger when the events of the Las Vegas Massacre started to unfold and he hopped to action. He stole one of the event’s service trucks and went around to help wherever he was able whether it was getting people to a better shelter or delivering injured people to the hospital. After it was all over, he was able to get around 20-30 people medical attention that they needed along with the countless others that he helped get to safety.
We as Americans thank you, Taylor, for setting such an example for everyone.
