Ex marine stole truck to save Vegas shooting victims – now look at message from car owner


The horrendous mass shooting of last Sunday October 1st 2017 left the whole nation and world in shock. The heartbreaking images we have witnessed and the stories we have heard are hard to believe.

But out of this devastating madness, there have also been stories of solidarity and people helping one another — even risking their lives for complete strangers.

An example of this is the story of 29-year-old Taylor Winston, an ex marine that thought on his feet and stole an empty truck so he could help victims.

Then, just a few days after the incident, the owner of the truck tracked Taylor down through text messages and now their texting conversation has been shared online.

During the Las Vegas shooting, Taylor Winston, an ex marine, didn’t think twice about jumping into an idle truck which still had its keys inside it.

Then, about 3 days after the horrific incident, Taylor received this message from the owner of the truck:


Taylor was able to drive almost 30 people to the ER in just two trips.
