A Marine commandeered a truck to save victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night.

29-year-old Taylor Winston was attending the festival with his girlfriend when he heard the shots fired.

"People were getting hit two or three feet away from us and as we were running looking back, people were falling down," he said. "It was just shooting fish in a barrel."

Winston dragged victims to safety before he found a truck with keys inside. He then loaded the truck with 20 to 30 victims in two trips to the hospital.

The owner of that truck did get the vehicle returned.
