A man who fell 47 stories from the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper lives to tell the horror! " Doctors say they have never seen anything like it: A window washer who fell 47 stories from the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper is now awake, talking to his family and expected to walk again. Alcides Moreno, 37, plummeted almost 500 feet in a December 7 scaffolding collapse that killed his brother." This must be a miracle since doctors say that he would be able to walk again. What do you think of this? Have you ever fallen from any tall building before? Full news: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/US/01/03/skyscraper.fall.survivor.ap/index.html

That is a ridiculous story I ever read. And I think it is a big miracle to live when you are falling to a 47 stories and anyone who fall under that is expected to die. I think makes him alive to have some mission on this earth.

Wow! That is amazing! Lucky guy. So this guy AND his brother fell at the same time? And his brother was killed, but he lived. Man, that would suck :( I do feel sorry for him in that aspect. I would hate having to live though something like that. But this guy getting another chance at life like this, it must mean something. And I hope he takes it happily!

Well, that is the strange thing. I started this post in People and now it has changed to Hobbies that I enjoy... You can even see that it was started in People. I wonder who would have changed that. Could it be changed by myLot and if that is so then they really have some sense of humor after all. LOL!

but i heard that his brother was unlucky because he did not make it. in any kind if work safety is very important and we should check all that is related to our task because some of the tools we're using might endanger us.

WOW! That poor guy. What an experiance that must have been. Its good to know he could walk again. He definatly had someone looking out for him. Its sad though that his brother passed. I have never fallen from a building because I have never been on the roof of one.
