    Firefighters daring rescue on video, pluck man from 5 alarm fire in bldg

    Watch as these Houston firefighters rescue a man dangling outside of these luxury apartments under construction. He jumps down to a lower floor awning, then seconds after he is rescued the building collapses. I've never seen anything like it!

    Love my firemen!!!!

    I watched it again and I know how it ends but my heart was still beating fast! Lol.

    Thanks for posting that interview! I tried to link the video of the rescue directly but for some reason it didn't work.

    He still looks shaken, poor guy.

    I can't believe how quickly that building burned to the ground! $50 million luxury apartments, poof. You know it had to be hot for him to make that awkward leap from the 5th floor ledge to the the 4th.
