Lucky Fireman

A fireman narrowly escapes being crushed by falling masonry after a brick wall collapsed just feet from where he was standing.



A firefighter called to a fire in Rochdale, Lancashire, was unfurling a water hose outside a derelict building when, without warning, part of the brick fa├žade collapsed.

As the masonry crashed onto the spot the fireman had been standing just moments earlier, the man calmly continued walking.

Footage of the incident was recorded last September and has been released by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service as a training guide for new recruits.

  6. I was a firefighter for 5 years and luckily never experienced anything like that. I had some close calls but nothing quite that close with falling debris.
