The worker was painting a building when the cherry picker caught fire. He suffered a leg injury and smoke inhalation, but survived the scary, 25-foot jump.
A man in a cherry picker faced a life or death situation when he collided with some power lines. To escape the flames, he had to jump 25 feet to the ground below.
The heart-pounding incident was caught on camera in Oxford, Alabama.
The flames were getting higher and higher, and with no time to waste, firefighters encouraged the man to jump into a tent that they happened to find at a Harley-Davidson dealership.
In moments, the thick smoke swallowed the man, who was painting the building when the cherry picker caught fire. At one point, there was a small explosion.
Onlookers yelled for the terrified man to jump. Finally, overcome with heat and smoke, he made the leap of faith.
After a successful landing, the man was flown to a local hospital and treated for a leg injury and smoke inhalation.
