    That she had survived was described as a miracle.

    Hi,

    "Five days after the earthquake, a woman was found alive under the ruins of her house. That she had survived was described as a miracle."

    If I wanted to put the noun clause at the end of the sentence, how it would be like, and is the following correct?

    "Five days after the earthquake, a woman was found alive under the ruins of her house. It/This was described as a miracle that she had survived."
