Heart-Pounding: Firefighter Saves Construction Worker’s Life in the Nick of Time

  

The Houston Fire Department says the blaze that sent thick, black smoke billowing in to the sky and drew hundreds of emergency personnel was “under control” by mid-afternoon Tuesday, about two-and-a-half hours after it started. All construction workers who had been in the high-rise building were accounted for, and no injuries have been reported. Video posted to YouTube shows one construction worker on a fourth-floor balcony of the structure, with heavy flames showing inside the building. As he was waiting for a ladder truck to come to his aid, the worker dropped down, swinging onto a balcony below. He was eventually rescued by the ladder, just as the top-story wall falls behind him in flames. The video, uploaded by user Karen Jones, claims to have been shot from a building on the AIG campus near the scene of the fire.

    That is one amazing video! So glad he got
    saved. This video deserves an academy award.
    The man is soooo lucky praise be to GOD.

    Yahweh / God still has work for this man to do! He has much to be thankful for… Praise Yahweh

    • CQ

      I’ll praise God, thank you. I speak English, not Hebrew.

      • We the SHEEPle

        God is a Title. Scripture says there are many gods & many lords. Also tells us: “To those who call upon My Name’, (Not nameS or titles…). He has several man-made-given Titles which are not His Name.
        In this same context, Jesus is a recent addition created by the RCC. He never heard it, nor was He called / known by that name… Ever! Does not appear in 1611 KJV Bible & others…..
        His Name, as give to Moses, in Hebrew is YHVH; in our English pronounced as Yahweh.

    One Life saved in the nick of time. Good Video – only slightly shakey – BUT the O.M.G woman did not add anything positive to this ” rescue experience “. When there is video ( pictures ) there is also audio ( sound ). This video is wonderful with the sound OFF !

      I muted the sound, too. It only detracted from the video.
