SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — People have given more than $70,000 to help a window washer who fell 11 stories from a downtown San Francisco building onto a moving car.

KNTV reports (http://bit.ly/1D2IgX1 ) that 1,155 people had donated $72,670 to a fund for 58-year-old Pedro Perez as of Monday.

Perez fractured his pelvis, broke an arm, ruptured an artery in his arm and sustained severe brain trauma when he fell from the top of a bank building in San Francisco's financial district and landed on a car on Nov. 21. The car's driver wasn't injured.

Perez has moved out of a hospital to a rehabilitation facility east of San Francisco. His family said he hopes to walk again.

Perez and a co-worker were helping move power cords on a roof platform when he fell.
