Watch From Multiple Helmet Cam Views as Firefighters Rescue Man at Apartment Fire

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
