Fire destroys a large under construction apartment complex in Houston. Video caught on tape of a construction worker rescued from the ledge of a window bursting with flames. The man was not injured.
Watch this dramatic video from Houston that shows a worker being rescued from a burning under-construction Houston apartment complex, after flinging himself from a fifth-floor ledge to a lower floor.
The worker is standing on the floor of an incomplete patio. He waves for help as flames draw closer, then dangles his legs over the edge, swings and drops to a fourth-floor ledge.
A firefighter on an extension ladder reaches the worker. The worker reaches and crawls to the ladder...and you won't believe what happens at the end.
