The owner of a auto dealership in Arizona said he wanted to give the vehicle to 29-year-old Taylor Winston to show his appreciation for what he did.

Winston told "CBS This Morning" he was dancing with his girlfriend at the Route 91 Harvest Festival country music concert moments before he heard popping sounds that he first thought were fireworks. Taylor Winston, a Marine, took a truck at the scene and drove 30 critically injured people to an area hospital.

On October 1, more than 50 people were killed and more than 500 were injured in what's being called the largest mass shooting in modern USA history.

So, B5 Motors offered Winston his very own customized Ford truck, free of all costs and charges.

The dealership posted on Facebook Wednesday that it was searching for Winston to thank him and tracked him down several hours later.

"It's very, very courageous what he did", he said.

To honor him, B5 Motors, a Gilbert auto dealership, chose to pay it forward by gifting him a brand new truck.

Taylor Winston risked his life to stay behind and help those injured as bullets rained down from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. He's planning on selling his current truck and donating the money to the victims of the massacre.
