PHOENIX (AP) — Donald Trump Jr. helped push a disabled car off a street while in Arizona to campaign for his father’s presidential campaign.

Media outlets report that the incident occurred in a Phoenix suburb Thursday as Trump Jr. was being driven from a rally at Arizona State University to another event.

Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman Tyler Bowyer posted about it on Facebook, saying Trump “hopped out first” to help push the woman’s car off the road and provide assistance.

Bowyer’s post included a video of several people pushing the car and a photo of Trump Jr. posing with the unidentified woman.

According to Bowyer, the woman didn’t indicate whom she was voting for but was surprised when people accompanying Trump Jr. told her who he was.
