Video of the dramatic rescue showed the construction worker dangling from a platform outside a third-story apartment that was engulfed in flames, then dropping to a platform below.

Rescuers were able to move a ladder close enough for the trapped worker to climb on.

As the ladder began to move the construction worker and a rescuer to safety, a section of the building came crashing down, narrowly missing the ladder.
