A fireman found himself engulfed in flames while trying to put out the fire in a burning apartment in Hubei, central China, recently.
The fire took hold incredibly quickly and the man was forced to leap from a first floor window, reported People’s Daily Online.
His dramatic escape in front of terrified witnesses was captured on film. It is believed that he only received minor injuries.
From the video, the fireman was seen standing by the window inside the burning apartment.
He appeared to be struggling with equipment for some moments as the fire raged on behind him.
