Video of construction worker rescued from burning building

HOUSTON (WKRC) -- Witnesses captured video of a construction worker's escape from a burning apartment complex in Houston.

"Oh my god! Is that a construction guy? Yeah!" Flames engulfed the building Tuesday, forcing the worker onto a balcony and trapping him on a ledge.

The intense heat forces him to hang and drop to a ledge below. He slips and then regains his balance. Firefighters finally reach him and pull him onto a ladder truck, just in time. Seconds later the building begins to collapse.

It took more than 200 firefighters to battle the fire. Incredibly, they report, no one was injured, including that construction worker.
