People have donated 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 that 1,155 people had donated money to a fund as of Monday.

Pedro Perez, 58, fractured his pelvis, broke an arm, ruptured an artery in his arm, and sustained severe brain trauma when he landed on a Toyota Camry after falling from the top of a bank building in the Financial District on Nov. 21. The car's driver was not injured.

Perez has moved out of San Francisco General Hospital to a rehabilitation facility east of The City. His family said he is hoping to one day walk again.
