HOUSTON – A KHOU viewer shot video Tuesday of a construction worker trapped on a fourth floor balcony with fire just feet away being rescued by firefighters.
The worker dropped to the balcony below and was rescued by fire crews.
HFD Capt. Brad Hawthorne was at the end of the ladder when they pulled the worker to safety.
“We train a lot for situations, but when it all comes together it pays off,” said Hawthorne.
