While the deadliest mass shooting in US history was unfolding in Las Vegas on Sunday, a Marine veteran stole a truck and likely saved about two dozen lives.
He initially thought they were fireworks, but then saw "people ... scattering and screaming and that's when we knew something real was happening," Winston told CBS.
Winston and his girlfriend, Jenn Lewis, started running with the rest of the crowd, but got trapped by a fence, he said.
"Once we got to the fence, I helped throw a bunch of people over and got myself over," he told CBS.
Winston said he and Lewis then saw "a field with a bunch of white trucks" and decided to stop fleeing and start helping.
“I was in such a speedy movement I didn’t assess anyone’s faces or anything,” Winston told The Daily Beast.
We needed to get them out of there regardless of our safety," Winston told CBS. »
