The Mirror:

The Russian emergency service worker was trying to rescue a child from a flat fire when he was struck on the head by the snow.

It knocked him backwards and despite being clearly dazed he managed to hang on to the ladder until a fellow firefighter came to his aid.

The footage shows a colleague passing over him to grab hold of the toddler and take him to safety.
