An onlooker caught it on video.

“Look at bro though,” the witness said as the man careened toward the building. “Oh damn! Oh, he’s stuck. Oh b–ch, we gotta help him! Oh, he’s stuck as f–k! We need to run over there.”

Per the New York Post, the man told cops he and four others umped from a plane at about 2 a.m. Sunday for reasons unknown. Four of his pals landed safely.

The man who didn't manage to land safely was rescued by Cleveland firefighters.

He escaped with his life but suffered a broken ankle.
