This changes the meaning of breaking the glass ceiling.

A man in Argentina has narrowly escaped death after a glass ceiling in his apartment building shattered and fell.

Pablo Onocko, a university student, told news website Las Brenas Digital "the world stopped for a second to me" as he jumped to escape the giant shards of glass raining down.

CCTV footage released online shows the terrifying incident, which occurred during a major storm that rocked the northern Argentinian city of Resistencia. 

It is unknown what caused the ceiling to fall down.

Mr Onocko managed to escape the ceiling collapse with just minor injuries.
