Ladder rescues can be very dangerous to not only the victim but also for the firefighters. Aerial rescue is not always possible, as seen in this video. These firefighters buy a little extra time in rescuing this victim and the route to safety ends up being the safest of all possibly. Great edit, great video, and great job! – RMF
