New York, Nov 15 (ANI): A US man, who jumped from the 39th floor of a Manhattan high-rise this summer and survived, has been spotted walking about like the incident never took place.

Thomas Magill, 22, an actor who starred in an off-Broadway production of 'Into The Woods', had sneaked into the West Side building where he once lived and jumped off its balcony on August 31.

A parked red Dodge Charger broke his fall, but he shattered much of his lower body when he crashed through the back window of the sports car.

He was initially listed in critical condition at St. Luke's Hospital, where during a series of surgeries, doctors inserted rods in his legs, rebuilt an ankle and stopped massive internal bleeding.

Magill was seen answering the door of his parents' Staten Island home last week and giving a spirited verbal thumbs-up.

"I'm doing good," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying.

A neighbour, who declined to give her name, was stunned with his recovery.

"It's a miracle. I asked his mom how Thomas was doing and she told me he was making a full recovery, that he would be fine," she stated. (ANI)
