Brazil: Corcovado damaged by lightning
The iconic statue of Jesus overlooking Rio de Janeiro, one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, has lost a thumb tip to lightening, a report said Friday.
Christ the Redeemer, the giant monument and tourist magnet that looms atop nearby Mount Corcovado, was damaged in a huge storm Thursday night, O Globo newspaper reported on its website.
The 125 foot statue of Jesus Christ was built in 1931 and renovated in 2010.
