A man in New York City has taken his love of social media to a new level - by tweeting an image of him stuck in a burning building.

Englishman Mickey Atwal, who is based in the Big Apple, tweeted a photo of smoke billowing from his apartment building earlier today and revealed to his followers he was trapped on the 26th floor with his family.

Mr Atwal said he was waiting outside on his balcony with his wife and two-year-old child as he waited for fire officials to rescue them.

The building's hallways are too congested with smoke for him to safely evacuate with his family.

"Stuck on building on 26 floor. Building on fire," he began, attaching an image of the smoke below him."

"Still stuck. Too much smoke on hallways. Elevators not working. Standing in balcony with wife and 2yr old," he added.
