Dramatic video of a construction worker stuck on the fourth floor of a burning apartment building was posted Tuesday.

The apartment building, which was under construction near the AIG campus in Houston, caught fire and burned for a few hours before firefighters got it under control.

One construction worker was trapped by the flames and was backed out on to a fourth floor balcony.

As the flames engulfed the building, the construction worker was obviously freaking out and tried to signal to firefighters nearby to help him.

He then took matters into his own hands, and managed to hang from the balcony and drop to the lower floor. A fire truck managed to reach him, but not before a massive section of the apartment collapsed just feet from him.
