Dealership surprises veteran who took truck to aid Las Vegas shooting victims

The Marine veteran, who attended the concert with his girlfriend, loaded some of the most critical victims into the bed of a stolen truck and sped to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center — all before ambulances had arrived on scene…

Winston’s brave act caught worldwide attention, as his story quickly spread across social media. Shane Beus, owner of B5 Motors in Gilbert, Arizona, recalled seeing local news reports about Winston days after the shooting.

“I started checking him out and the time frame,” Beus told CBS News. “I talked to some friends — I have ties over in Vegas — some of my friends were hurt, shot, some saw the whole situation.”

Beus said he was inspired to reach out to the veteran. He wanted to find a way to say “thank you.”

“This guy was in the military. He obviously was in a situation where he had to act fast and that’s what he did,” Beus said. “Most of us that wouldn’t even cross our mind. We’d think, ‘We have to get the heck out of here.'”

So, B5 Motors enlisted help from social media users to help them find the 29-year-old veteran from San Diego, announcing they would like to give him a “free truck.” Within 7 hours, the company said they got in touch with the man.
