It’s like a scene from a movie. Only this time it’s real, and a Texas construction worker’s life is in danger.

Video posted to YouTube shows a Texas apartment complex engulfed in flames. Standing on a fourth-floor balcony is a construction worker. He appears calm, but concerned. The only thing separating him from the red-hot flames is a door.

Seemingly, as the heat gets too intense, the construction worker clamors over the edge and drops down to the third floor balcony — a maneuver one might see in a Spider Man movie.

When help finally arrives, it’s a tense situation. The construction worker appears so eager to get away from the flames, it seems as if he is about to jump — or fall. See how it unfolds and watch just how close the construction worker was to serious injury — or even death.
