A fire on the construction of a high rise apartment building in Houston, Texas almost claimed the life of a construction worker.

In the video below, you see a construction worker trapped on a balcony with nothing but fire behind him.

Thanks to his quick thinking and the work of the Houston Fire Department, he made it to safety.

Barely.

Even when you think he's out of the woods, he's not.

Watch the video (Editor's Note:  You may want to watch it on mute.)
