During the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, where over 50 people were killed and hundreds more injured, several stories of local heroes have emerged.

One couple who attended the concert used their truck to help deliver people to the hospital.

Their heroism may have saved several lives.

Per Daily Mail:

She said: ‘Then everyone starts yelling, ‘Get on the ground! get on the ground!”

‘I’m surprised, I really am, that no one I know was injured. I thought for sure we were all going to die.

‘We saw everyone being shot left and right. We’re just all on top of each other on the floor, huddling together, looking at each other not sure what to do.’

Padgett was able to safely run from the scene with her friends and fiance.

The couple then noticed many were severely injured as a result and quickly jumped in to help the situation:

She explained that as soon as the sound of gunshots stopped, she and Jay went to get her truck from the parking lot across the street from the venue.

‘We realized there were people everywhere that needed help and on stretchers … People saw that we had a truck, so we said, ‘Fine, yeah,’ and started to pack everyone in,’ Padgett said of trying to help those injured.

They were able to fill her truck with five wounded victims and five others who were caring for the victims.

‘We were just trying to get people to the hospital. We got halfway there, and as we were getting on the freeway, we saw an ambulance stopped, so we went over and they started taking the most critical people and putting them in the ambulance,’ Padgett said.

Padgett and her fiance helped those they transported into the hospital and intended to return to the concert to help more:

Padgett said that one of the men in her truck was shot in the back. Paramedics who took him out the back told her he later died.

‘The ambulance told us to follow them to the hospital with the rest of the injured people,’ she said.

Padgett said of the other victims in her truck, one man had been shot in the chest and a girl was shot in the leg.

When they arrived to a hospital, she and Jay helped the victims inside.

They then left to check on her family members who were also at the concert, she said.

‘We were ready to go back and get more people, but my cousin called me because they were scared. My cousin was locked inside the MGM and they heard screaming, so we went there to get my cousin and my family,’ Padgett said.

Heroic!
