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."
