Neighbour rescued from burning building caught on camera

Resourceful neighbours in a US apartment block saved a man's life as he dangled from the window of his burning home in Washington Heights, New York.

Roscindo Lopez and Guardencio Portillo used a ladder as a platform to lead him to safety as fire-fighters arrived.

They later said their thinking was "only to save the life of the guy".
