Not only did that video take forever to get to the payoff, the payoff wasn't worth it.

Lsherm: the payoff wasn't worth it.


You would have preferred that the poor guy plunged five stories head first?

That looks like it could be fun.

I don't want him dead, but I would have preferred something more entertaining.  Maybe the ladder truck tips over or something.

The comment over the video reads like it was written by MStD:

Picking up the childIn Magadan in a dormitory fire occurred. Firemen trying to get to the fifth-floor window. Through the window he had to hand the child, but the roof fell on him icicle and snow peak. Man miraculously no fell down the stairs. In this incident, no one was seriously hurt.

That's not what your wife said.
Evidently they have no NFPA or OSHA standards.

There was no reason to be evacuating them in the first place. It's obviously a very small fire that's at least several units away and possibly not even on the same floor. Stay in the room, shut the door to the hallway

Was expecting a suburban American fireman. Those guys are lucky because they don't actually fight fires and get paid $100k to workout and eat

No dashcam of this?

I was listening to this while I watched the video.

Oddly enough, it seemed appropriate.

Growing up in NY I was taught not to even think about walking under iciles. shiat, I've never written the word icicle. Better check the speilling.

Had several close call over the years but never like this. Couldn't they have shot some water and drop that thing? Anyways that looked like it hurt and good job, all around.

That doesn't seem very lucky to me.

Seems to me like he wanted the kid to die and was throwing obstacles at these would-be heroes and their attempts to thwart His will.

Reading the video description hurt my head

I guess you didn't notice all the smoke coming from the window they took that kid out of.

Yeah, I am pretty sure all of the firefighters who were not concussed by a huge chunk of ice were luckier.

Firefighter rescue attempt almost foiled by falling water.

"IRONIC" tag?

I'm going to assume the stairwell is in centre, going up from the entrance. The windows are staggered from the rest of the floors. There is smoke billowing out of one of the windows suggesting that they can't exit out of there. I'm also going to guess Russia's (assuming) fire codes aren't the greatest or most adhered to either and that may be the only exit.

Was it just me or did anyone else think that ladder looked flimsy? I thought the whole ladder and truck were going to tip over.

It's pretty lame when you have admins that green light stupid lame shiat only because they are afraid of their mom seeing something they would get all embarrassed about.

Time to start recycling some things over there guys. The videos here suck dick.

Lucky? A huge farking chunk of snow and ice fell on his head. Lucky would have been, huge farking chunk of ice and snow did not fall on his head.

Read the headline and wondered if this video was a fireman slipping through Death;s knuckly grip because death squeeze too hard, or did a fireman :"have to" perform mouth to mouth on an absolute hottie? Turns out to be the former. I'm glad he got so lucky.

If he was lucky, he wouldn't have been beaned by the Apartmalanche.

How the hell would we have known? The guy filming (Who said "Wooo") never stopped filming the top of the ladder. For all I know, he did fall all the way to the ground, got a coffee and then climbed back up 2/3 of the way before the camera guy decided to pan down.

Oh, and... The guy who wrote the description no good word speak English
