Window washer falls 47 stories ... and lives

Alcides Moreno fell 47 stories and lived to tell the tale.

The window washer rode a 16-foot scaffold as it careered down the side of a skyscraper and crashed into the alley nearly 500 feet below.

I don't know what to say, I fell two story and landed flat on my back and that knocked the wind out of me, smacked my . big time too.
As the articles says, and I think I have to agree.





Authorities are investigating the cause of the accident. No one's sure how Alcides survived the fall, leading us to conclude that it was the Miracle on 66th Street.

He is one lucky human being.

Thanks for posting a story that brings warmth to the heart.

I hope he has found a new zeal for living from the experience.

Kinda reminds me of that movie Unbreakable. Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson. Will not ruin the movie if you have not seen it, but maybe there is something else going on that kept him from dying.

According to the wife she didn't have to tell him his brother died, he knew already. She said he told her it was not his time repeatedly. Makes you wonder where he was, possible near death experience.
