It’s like a scene from a movie. A construction worker trapped on a fourth-floor balcony during a raging fire does what many of us would be too afraid of doing.

The above video was posted to YouTube Tuesday.  It shows a Texas apartment complex engulfed in flames. A man is standing on the fourth-floor balcony appearing calm jumps over the edge and swings to the third floor balcony in a maneuver one might see Spider Man do.

When help finally arrives, it’s a tense situation. The construction worker appears so eager to get away from the flames, it seems as if he is about to jump — or fall.

See how it unfolds and watch just how close the construction worker was to serious injury — or even death.
