Man Jumps From Cherry Picker To Escape Fire, Explosion

A viral video shows a scary moment for a guy who collided with power lines while he was on a cherry picker while painting a building in Oxford, Alabama. The man had no choice but to make a 25-foot leap of faith to the ground below, in order to escape a deadly explosion.

As flames climbed higher towards the basket, firefighters encouraged the man to jump in what’s said to be an outstretched tent, which was being used as an impromptu parachute. Smoke quickly began to billow up to the man moments later, along with a small explosion in the lower body of the machine.

The man was later treated for a leg injury and smoke inhalation, according to Inside Edition.
