MOSCOW — A Russian firefighter attempting to rescue a toddler from an apartment window was knocked back when a huge pile of snow on the roof above him let go.

The firefighter is somehow able to catch himself before tumbling the entire length of the tower ladder. According to the BBC, the firefighter was not injured in the fall.

Fellow firefighters came to his aid with one firefighter continuing up to rescue the child from the window.
