Firefighters pulled off a dramatic rope rescue early Tuesday morning in Brooklyn.

It happened after flames broke out inside the kitchen of an apartment in a building on 16th Street and 8th Avenue in the Park Slope neighborhood.

Firefighters arrived just after 6:22 a.m. to find a man in his 20s who somehow had shimmied from outside his fourth floor window to a neighbor’s.

Several firefighters set up a rescue operation, in which one firefighter rappelled down from the roof and grabbed the trapped resident.
