Las Vegas shooting hero to be given free truck

San Diego Marine saves dozens from Las Vegas shooter

Police said 58 people were killed in the attack and 489 were wounded in the attack, which has been described as the worst mass shooting in USA history. He plans to sell his current truck and donate the proceeds to the shooting victims.

B5 Motors offered Winston a brand-new Ford F-150 to honor him and express appreciation for his bravery, courage and American spirit.

"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 USA history. He heard popping sounds that he first thought were fireworks but were rapid-fire bursts of gunfire.

The former marine was attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowds. That is when he saw keys in a truck in a lot near the venue and didn't hesitate to jump into action.

"It was still quite scary, but we just knew they (the victims) had to get to the hospital immediately", Winston told CNN's Anderson Cooper last week. He's more than humbled by the attention - and even shrugs it off, lamenting that he's getting far more credit than others who were just as fearless that night and saying it's hard to accept his status as a "hero". He made two trips before ambulances arrived on scene, CBS reported.

Winston's response to the generous gift is exactly what you'd expect from someone who's served.
