A video of a Las Vegas couple being asked to use their truck to transport wounded after mass shooting on Las Vegas Strip soon went viral on Facebook.

Action News spoke to the couple about what happened.

Padgett and Mark Jay, who were at the Route 91 musical festival, initially took shelter in an airport hanger. As soon as they believed it was safe, they made their way to their truck.

Several people were loaded into the truck and they began making their way to a local hospital.

They eventually met up with an ambulance but not all of their passengers survived.

After the video began making the rounds, people began calling them heros.

But, Padgett and Jay don't see it that way. They believe that they simply did what they had to do.
