    Crane driver saves worker from burning building in Denmark

    • A construction worker swung to safety via crane from the top of burning building
    • Clip shows the man grabbing hold of a chain from the crane and then leaping off
    • The crane lowered him to the ground although he swung towards the building
    • The impromptu rescue took place in Denmark, it's unclear what caused the fire

    Similar thing happened in Russia, in St. Petersburg, last year, crane operator Tamara Pastukhova saved three men from her construction site, when a blaze broke out; staying in her control booth up there even as the flames surrounded her crane.

    She was awarded a medal for heroism later

    and, more importantly, the refugee woman from Donbass, from Ukraine, was given a Russian passport
