Kind strangers help Las Vegas victims by carrying them on make-shift barrier stretchers moments after shooting

Brave passers-by helped victims wounded in the Las Vegas shooting by building make-shift stretchers and commandeering passing trucks to take people to hospital.

At least 50 people have been killed and more than 100 injured after a gunman opened fire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on the city’s famous strip.

Mobile phone footage shows kind strangers tending to people with gunshot wounds in the street just moments after the attack at about 10.20pm local time.

Stretchers were made using the festival barriers and tens of wounded can be seen being carried to a safe place for treatment.

One man can be heard going up to the driver of a truck and telling them they need her vehicle.

“We need your truck,” he said. “We just need to get people over to the hospital.”

The driver replies: ” Okay, go ahead. Put them all in the back.”

Bloodied people on makeshift stretchers were scattered across the road and one man even appeared to ferry another wounded victim in a wheelbarrow during the harrowing footage.
