In times of natural disaster, every helping hand counts.
Hurricane Harvey leaves behind utter devastation in Houston leaving thousands stranded.
One man trapped in his SUV because of the storm received help from concerned residents attempting to pull him out.
Video footage posted on Youtube shows people coming together to help the elderly man as floodwaters sweep his car away.
Maritza Castillo, her husband and many other drivers were stuck in traffic when they saw the car and rushed to help. "Somebody said, 'Let's form a chain,'" Ms Castillo told CNN.
With their arms linked together, they got closer to the car and successfully managed to pull him out.
"They pulled the door open and one gentleman got a hold of him as they held on until they got him safe," an eyewitness told Mashable.
