NEW YORK CITY - Cell phone video captured a dramatic rescue effort when a couple of men rescued their neighbor from a burning New York City apartment block.
A fire had broken out in a Washington Heights building when a man in a red shirt was seen standing on a window ledge, five floors up, while thick black smoke poured out from behind him.
Twelve feet away, two men on a fire escape tried several times to help the man, and were finally rewarded as thick black smoked bellowed from a window.
