Christ breaks finger by lightning   Leave a comment

  By the hand of God, Jesus touched slightly verhakkeld. We are talking about the lightning that last week the iconic statue of Christ overlooking the bay of Rio de Janeiro. High time to assess the damage and repair. No job for people with vertigo, but it does provide a nice picture.


The thumb of the immense image of the 710 meters high Corcovado Mountain was torn off during the downturn. The right middle finger was damaged and the head of Christ Redeemer walked a few ‘scrapes’ on. To repair this, the workers had to get inside the head of Jesus. Almost unfeasible for an ordinary mortal, but small beer for the specialized craftsmen. A swinging door was enough for them.


All in all, Jesus thus the storm, with more than forty thousand thunderbolts, withstood. Authorities plan to install the 38-meter high statue to minimize the risks. Possible damage in the future lightning The cost of the repair, about 600,000 euros (1.9 million Brazilian reals) to be borne by the tire manufacturer.
