Brian Roberson II was stuck on Texas State Highway 288 when he came across a man on top of submerged cars. 

The man told Roberson he was a pastor and wanted to help to make sure no one was in those stranded vehicles

"It was such a powerful visual that shows how we can all do something to look out for each other," Roberson said. 

The pictures Roberson took show the pastor in chest-deep water as he tries to check for victims.
