A video of a firefighter jumping out of the window of a burning second-floor apartment in Jianli county, Hubei Province, has gone viral on Chinese social media. In the video, the firefighter is seen standing by the window attempting to arrange a line that he could grab to slide down, as the flames continue to grow intense. However, as his clothes caught fire, he was left with little option but to jump off the window holding on to the fire hose. Fortunately, he survived the incident, only suffering minor injuries to his hands.
