A stray bolt of lightning struck and damaged the famous Jesus the Redeemer statue that overlooks Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this week. In a bizarre natural phenomenon that appears not unlike the wrath of the gods, the iconic statue often viewed as a holy symbol had a finger hit and severed this week by the powerful flash. Fortunately, the official caretaker for the statue and local officials have confirmed that plans for repairing the Christ figure are already underway, affirms UPI News this Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014.
The giant statue that gazes down on the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is now missing the upper tip of its thumb, confirmed Rev. Osmar Raposo. Raposo serves as head manager of the site in which the holy statue of Jesus the Redeemer rests.
