Yesterday Jimmy was asking how one of the window washers, that fell from that 47 story building last week, survived the fall. I was wondering that too and came across this article today. After a Window Washer’s 47-Floor Plunge, the Big Question Is: How Did He Survive? It looks like he rode it down, lying flat on his stomach. We won't know for sure until this guy talks, but I cannot imagine going through that. I think the fear going through me would kill me first.
