A fire raged out of control at an apartment complex in Houston, Texas yesterday and while no member of the public or firefighters were hurt in the blaze that doesn't make this rescue any less dramatic.
The video shows a construction worker stranded on a ledge as a half finished building catches fire. With the flames racing his way and a firetruck inching towards him, the man takes his life into his hands to descend part of the building.
It's properly crazy stuff.
Thankfully everyone emerged safely.
