    Meanwhile, relatives claimed yesterday that hours before the brothers tumbled nearly 500 feet off an East Side high rise Friday, they were told to come to work because their scaffold, which had been plagued with problems, had been fixed.

    "They told me their boss said the scaffold was fixed and to come to work so they both left" home, said their distraught brother-in-law, José Cumbicos. "[They] left confident that the scaffold was fixed but it appears it wasn't."

    Edgar Moreno, 30, was killed in the fall, but officials were dumfounded as to how Alcides managed to survive.

    Officials say the half-brothers from Ecuador who live in Linden, NJ, appeared not to have had their harnesses on when the scaffold failed, but relatives insist they were never careless.
