WATCH: Construction Worker Makes Dramatic Escape From Burning Building Fire

A Houston construction worker made a jaw-dropping escape from an apartment complex completely engulfed in flames — and it was all caught on video.

With the fire raging feet behind him, the man dangled himself off of the balcony and propelled himself forward to jump down to the floor below.

His split-second decision to climb down to the fourth floor probably saved his life. The fifth floor later collapsed from all the damage.

Firefighters eventually brought him to safety with help from a ladder.

The worker did not suffer any injuries and the rest of the crew was able to evacuate safely.

But hey, if the whole construction gig doesn’t work out, he’d make one helluva an action movie star!
