‘Miraculous’ Recovery for Man Who Fell 47 Floors - New York Times

Published: January 4, 2008
Alcides Moreno plunged 47 stories that morning last month, clinging to his 3-foot-wide window washer’s platform as it shot down the dark glass face of an Upper East Side apartment building. His brother Edgar, who had been working with him on the platform, was killed.
Somehow, Alcides Moreno survived.

This is a amazing story. Well worth reading. After falling 47 stories Alcides survived, obviously
hurt pretty badly but doctors think he will up and walking within a year.

    That is amazing, isn't it? I can't imagine what was going through his mind when he was falling.
