Footage making the rounds online shows dozens of drivers in Houston forming a human chain to save an elderly man from being swept away by Hurricane Harvey’s floodwaters.
According to Fox2Now, the man’s SUV was being carried by the floodwaters when several bystanders frantically stepped in.
The Good Samaritans linked their arms together and inched towards the SUV as it was filling up with water. They struggled quite a bit getting the vehicle’s door open, with one rescuer even climbing onto the SUV’s roof, but were able to pull the man out eventually, dragging him to safety.
He was subsequently taken to a hospital and reunited with his son.
