HOUSTON (CNN/KTRK/YouTube (Karen Jones)/KPRC) – Witnesses captured heart-stopping video of a Texas construction worker clinging to a burning apartment complex, rescued as the top portion of the building collapsed.
The worker was trapped on a ledge as the building he was working in was engulfed in flames.
You can hear the reaction from witnesses as the fire raged.
“Oh my God! Is that a construction guy? Yeah!”
The intense head drove him to hang and drop to a ledge below – slipping before regaining his balance.
Witness video captured the man being pulled onto the ladder truck just in time. Seconds later the building collapsed.
Houston media reported it took more tham 200 firefighters to battle the fire. No one was injured, including the construction worker.
