Apparently, the temperature inside the inferno was so high that his special suit failed to withstand the heat. The clip shows the firefighter falling from the window witnessed by a panic-gripped crowd below.

The fireman suffered serious burns in his dramatic last-minute escape from the Jingzhou Jianli residential building.
