A Miracle Man's 30-Foot Fall Leave New York Personal Injury Attorneys Believing in Miracles, too
Date:8/24/2009

A man falls 30-feet down into a basement in Manhattan, amazing rescue workers, witnesses, and everyone else in New York, personal injury attorneys included, know about drops hidden by those metal sidewalk plates.

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 24, 2009 -- The New York Post has named him the "Miracle Man" and New York personal injury attorneys would have to agree. It's extremely rare that a person would survive a 30-foot fall into a basement with nothing more than cuts and bruises.

"It's a miracle that he survived the fall with so little injury," said David Perecman, a New York personal injury attorney familiar with slip and fall injuries.

Vincent Riggio, the man who fell, was stepping out of an OTB parlor in Tribeca to smoke a cigar when the metal doors he was standing on gave way. Apparently, the metal plate holding the doors steady had corroded and gave way when Riggio put his full weight on them.

Firefighters hoisted him from the basement using a rope and harness.

"New York personal injury attorneys would prefer not to rely on miracles when it comes to public safety," quipped Perecman, speaking for himself and other personal injury attorneys at his Manhattan firm.
