Veteran Who Stole A Truck To Help Vegas Shooting Victims Gets The Greatest Text From Its Owner

In the aftermath of the horrific Las Vegas shooting, former Marine Taylor Winston sprang into action and "stole" an empty truck that had the keys left inside it in order to drive victims to the hospital. Recently, he got the perfect response from the truck's owner.

The owner texted Winston, 29, saying, "Hey Taylor, [I was] told you might have the keys to my truck?? All I [want] is the key. Other [than] that it’s all water under the bridge to me, and how’s the person you hauled doing?" 

Winston was incredibly grateful that the owner understood the nature of the situation, and immediately gave the owner an update on the status of his vehicle. "I have em for ya. When do you want to meet for 'em?" he responded. "We’re at the Monte Carlo. I took about 30 critically injured to the hospital. Your truck was extremely important saving those peoples lives. I don’t know if they all made it. Sorry about doing so and all the blood. I saved the tool box too. We pulled it out to fit more people but put it back in after the 3rd trip."

Winston, who joined the Marines when he was 17 and was honorably discharged in 2011, worked tirelessly to load up the most critical victims in the back of the truck and get them to the Desert Springs Hospital Center. He described the scene as being "like a war zone, but [victims] couldn’t fight back."
