This video of a man being rescued from a Houston apt. fire is astounding

This video of a man being rescued from a fire in Houston yesterday is just astounding.  I don’t know that I’ve quite seen anything like it before.

The fire engulfed a new 396-apartment complex.

Look at the workman stuck on the balcony. The flames got so hot he had to jump down to the next balcony in a rather daredevil move.

And as the firefighters are saving the man, he and the firefighter narrowly miss getting killed.
