Nurse posts damage of Toyota after he saves many lives from California fire – Toyota responds perfectly

California continues to bravely battle against the most destructive fires in the state’s history. Between the blazes raging in the north and the south, the Golden State has been forced to deal with a natural enemy President Donald Trump has already afforded major disaster status.

And yet in the midst of catastrophe, all manner of stories are emerging that depict the fantastic deeds human beings are capable of when their backs are truly against the wall.

One such story comes from a hospital in the ruined town of Paradise, where – as per NBC News – doctors and nurses continued to treat their patients in the parking lot as the fire consumed their hospital. They were eventually given the all-clear to evacuate, but for many survival was a close-run thing.

One of the nurses at the hospital was Allyn Pierce. He lost his house and his workplace in the fire, and has since uploaded a photo of his truck – a Toyota Tundra he used in the evacuation – to show people just how serious the situation was.

Close call

Allyn is a man who loves his truck, so it was with a heavy heart that he took to social media to describe the damage it sustained. In doing so, however, he was sure to include praise for Toyota for making a vehicle robust enough to save his life from the inferno.

Toyota’s response not only proved that their PR team are earning their keep, but also went a long way to helping Allyn.

Of course, in light of what has happened the gesture may seem small, but it’s still something that will make a huge difference to Allyn.

New York Times reporter Jack Nicas took to Twitter to go into more detail concerning the story. His series of tweets make for quite the eye-opening read:

Despite what Allyn says, we think he and all the brave men and women working to save others in the California fires are genuine, real life heroes.
