(KGTV) – A San Diego man rescued about thirty people from the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting Sunday night.

Taylor Winston says when the gunfire started he began helping people over a fence. That’s when he noticed festival trucks parked at a nearby parking lot. 


One of the trucks had keys in them, so he drove he started loading injured people in them to get them out of harm's way.

“We went back into the gunfire and started looking for priority victims, people with the most serious injuries to get to the hospital,” Winston said.

Winston said he made two trips. By the third time, he says emergency crews had gotten control of the scene.

“There’s a lot of unsung heroes that day that stood up and helped people,” he said.
