Although Moreno was a U.S. citizen before the accident, his brother, Edgar, was not. The paperwork arrived after his death.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited the companies that employed the window washers and installed the scaffolding, fining them a total of $40,000.
Continuing to defy conventional wisdom, Moreno is making significant progress. Now, only six months after that terrifying morning, he is walking completely on his own.
His recovery is one that he says he could not have done without wife Rosie, who kept constant vigil on a tiny couch next to his hospital bed.
"This is home forever," Moreno said. "I mean, look, I have me a Puerto Rican girl."
She may be Puerto Rican to his Ecuadorian, but Moreno declared proudly that their home is the life they have built together, with their three children: Michael, 14; Mariah, 8; and Andrew, 6.
Now, he cheers at Mariah's soccer games, enjoys family barbecues as the summer melts away and spends Sunday mornings at church, where friends welcomed him back from a miracle that no one could have imagined.
