A chunk of snow fell from the roof and hit a Russian firefighter who was trying to reach people trapped by fire on 4th floor on Thursday (January 17) in the east Siberian city of Magaden. As the firefighter approached the window where the people were waiting to be rescued, a chunk of snow on the roof suddenly fell down and sent him tumbling down the ladder. He hung on as a fellow firefighter rushed to help him. One of them climbed on and saved a child from an apartment window. The Emergencies Ministry reported no casualties in the incident.
