An Arizona vehicle dealership rewarded him Monday with a free, customized Ford F-150 in appreciation for his bravery and quick thinking on October 1, when Winston made two trips to the hospital while officials were still scrambling to get ambulances to the concert venue. "He was willing to risk his life and run back into the storm and help out".

Winston said he plans to sell his current vehicle and will donate the money to victims of the mass shooting.

Police said 58 people were killed in the attack and 489 were wounded in the attack, which has been described as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Winston told "CBS This Morning" he was dancing the two-step with his girlfriend just moments before.

He commandeered a truck which he found with the keys still in the ignition at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival to bring victims to a nearby medical centre.

"I saw a field with a bunch of white trucks", Winston said. I tested my luck to see if any of them had keys in it, first one we tried opening had keys sitting right there. He's more than humbled by the attention - and even shrugs it off, lamenting that he's getting far more credit than others who were just as fearless that night and saying it's hard to accept his status as a "hero". "The people doing a makeshift hospital, [others] running into the gunfire to get people out to the road for me to be able to extract them".

Winston said he made two trips from the concert venue to the hospital.

Winston's friends thanked him on Facebook.
