At the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas, around 22000 people were caught up in the mayhem when they heard gunfire and started running and collapsing with blood all around.
Hundreds were running to take shelter including poker player and Instagram Sensation Dan Bilzerian. Some of them lay flat on the ground not knowing about the direction of the bullets, little did they know that the bullets were losing from above them.
Amid all the chaos, comes a saviour who stole a truck to rescue victims of the killing spree.
The man who took charge of the rescue in gunfire turned out to be 29-year-old former marine Taylor Winston. While still in the scene, Taylor Spot a car which had the keys still inside. He, not thinking twice, started driving people away from the massacre quite a few times with gunfire still on.
Recently, the owner finally got in touch with Winston and decided to ask the whereabouts of his key.
Taylor shared the message he received;
“Hey Taylor, [I was] told you might have the keys to my truck?? All I want is the key. Other then that it’s all water under the bridge to me. And how’s the people you hauled doing?”
Winston replied saying;
“I have ’em for ya. When do you want to meet for ’em? We’re at the Monte Carlo. I took about 30 critically injured to the hospital. Your truck was extremely important saving those people’s lives.”
“I don’t know if they all made it.”
Apparently, the former marine managed to take about 24 people out of the firing scene but the number of victims who were lucky enough to survive the injuries is still unknown.
But the saviour did make a difference in the lives of who were rescued.
With a number of deaths coming to 58 and about 515 people suffering fatal injuries by either gunshot or during the escape, this Vegas attack becomes the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
The man who single handedly put up with the plan was later revealed to be a 64 year old man, Stephen Paddock. He was shooting from a broken window from the room on the 32nd floor at the Mandalay Hotel. Paddock took his own life before law enforcement could reach him. While checking the room, they found at least 10 fire arms inside.
Salute to every man who saves the life.
