A WINDOW cleaner in New York, who fell 47-storeys from a skyscraper, has survived and is making a gradual recovery.

Doctors say it is a miracle. Alcides Moreno fell 150m to the ground in a scaffolding accident that killed his brother. Mr Moreno suffered severe brain, spine and abdomen injuries. Both his legs, his right arm and ribs were also broken. After several operations he is now awake, able to talk and is expected to walk again. Doctors treating Mr Moreno believe that his recovery is a miracle.
