Video of a construction worker leaping from a balcony to escape the massive fire consuming a Houston apartment complex.
Yesterday, a Houston apartment complex that was still under construction caught fire. And although miraculously no one was hurt, one construction worker was trapped on a balcony, and as the flames got perilously closer, he made the decision to LEAP to the balcony below to escape the heat. Somebody in the office building from across the street captured the terrifying near-death experience on video, and provided the eye-rolling commentary (people actually”OMG”?). As YouTube commenters have been pointing out, this is why you do your push-up/pull-up routines, people. You just never know… And stick around for the surprise “OH HELL NO” ending, when seconds after he jumps to a firefighter’s ladder, part of the building collapses behind him. (via Gawker)
