They call it a miracle. It is of course that. For there is no scientific way of explaining how a New York window cleaner who fell off 47-storey could have survived. And, mind you, he is progressing well.
On Dec.7 Alcides Moreno, 37, tumbled some 500ft (150m) to the ground in a scaffolding accident that killed his brother.
Moreno suffered severe brain, spine and abdomen injuries and both his legs, his right arm and ribs were broken.
But after undergoing a series of surgeries he is now awake, able to talk and is expected to walk again.
