    Question Rope Bailout Incidents?

    Does anyone know of any documented incidents where rope was used to bail out from an upper story, besides Black Sunday. Where can this info be found?

    Several years ago a Philly FF was trapped on the roof of a 4 or 5 story bldg. He rappelled down his personal rescue rope to safety....Less than 5 minutes later the entire roof burned through. There is video of it, but I don't have any more info than that....Sorry.....
