Gripping Video Shows Construction Worker Rescued from Massive Houston Fire: WATCH


A devastating fire tore through a 396-apartment complex under construction yesterday in Houston's Montrose District. Thankfully, no injuries were reported and all personnel were accounted for - but things got particularly scary for one construction worker captured in a harrowing video shot from a nearby building.

As rescue workers tried to reach him, the worker was forced to leap from one balcony to another.

Watch the amazing rescue, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. Yeah, the guy making jokes didn't see the construction worker until after he made the joke. I would probably sound exactly like them. What else can you say?

  7. That was the closest call I've seen in a long time, doubly so when the wall collapsed. Thanks for posting good reasons to be grateful for ones life and safety.

  12. My brother is a fireman. He told me that over half of his calls to fires are on construction sites.

    People get sloppy with the equipment.
