    AFTER THE FALL - By AUSTIN FENNER and ADAM NICHOLS, New York Post
    Moreno, 37, and his brother, Edgar, 30, were scrubbing glass at the top of an apartment building at 265 E. 66th St. on Dec. 7 when cables connecting their 16-foot-long aluminum scaffold to the roof failed.

    The brothers fell 500 feet to the ground - more than enough to kill them. Doctors say falls from three or four stories are fatal half the time.

    But Alcides Moreno survived - his plunge slowed by the flat scaffold platform's wind resistance and the possibility that it slammed into the ground corner first.
