Video footage has emerged of a firefighter making the death-defying leap from a burning building as the flames begin to engulf his clothing.
According to NetEase, the incident took place in Jianli country, Hubei province. In the video, a firefighter is seen standing next to the window attempting to arrange a line that he could use to hold on to and escape.
Before he gets the chance, however, the flames grow more and more intense, engulfing the firefighter’s clothing. In a moment of desperation, he decides to leap from the building rather than be consumed by the fire.
Amazingly the firefighter escaped from the incident with very little injury, suffering only minor burns to his hands.
