Vice President Mike Pence was seen on video helping the wife of a congressman after getting out of Air Force Two.

Pence was walking alongside Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) during a visit to Texas on Aug. 22.

That’s when Culberson’s wife, Belinda, tripped on the ground, CBS News reporter Mark Knoller wrote on Twitter.

“Pence rushes to the aid of Belinda Culberson, wife of @CongCulberson, when she fell stepping off the stairs of Air Force Two at Hobby Airport in Houston. She was not hurt and Pence and Culberson went to greet supporters on the tarmac,” Knoller wrote.

Pence quickly rushed to her side, and the two briefly chatted, Reuters video footage shows.

Pence was visiting Texas nearly one year after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the state.

According to Houston Public Media, Pence this week visited Rockport, a coastal Texas town that was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey.

“I want to assure you as I’ve assured the Governor privately, we are going to continue to work with this Governor and work with this state to rebuild until the job is done,” the vice president said during public remarks in the town, according to Houston Public Media. He said the Trump administration“is going to work with this Governor, with all of the wonderful, outstanding volunteers and faith communities across this region until we rebuild Rockport and all of Texas bigger and better than ever before.”

First Baptist Church senior pastor Scott Jones said that Pence’s visit is a boost to the area, saying that he was touched that the vice president noted the efforts of volunteers and others who helped rebuild the area.

“We did not expect him, and so it was a surprise,” he told the Caller-Times. “It was very encouraging, and it made us realize we’re not in this alone. They’re still watching, and I think that was a big boost to the community.”
