Photo Of Hero Rescuing Two Children In Hurricane Harvey Emerges Online

By Mark Pygas

At least eight people are believed to have died as a result of Hurricane Harvey, with a record 30 inches of rain falling on the city of Houston, leaving highways totally submerged by water. The heavy rains are expected to continue into the week, with Harvey set to pick up more water from the Gulf of Mexico before heading inland once again. 

And while many have focused on the devastating impact of the storm, there have been many cases of heroism amid the chaos. One of the photos that has gone viral shows a Harris County Sheriff's Office deputy carrying two children to safety.
