Christ lightning strike is electric intervention |
by Shannon at 4:23 pm EST, Feb 15, 2008

This amazing picture taken of the Christ Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro puts a new meaning to the phrase 'touched by the hand of God.'

The 130 foot tall statue which is located on the peak of the Corcovado Mountain, was stuck by lightening during a storm in the Brazilian city displaying this divinely electric image.

Named one of the modern Wonders of the World in 2007, the statue which is the largest one of Christ and can be seen for miles appeared unscathed from the miraculous bolt.

Does this qualify as child abuse?

I would think that (a) being the tallest object around, it gets hit a lot and that the only thing unusual is that someone photographed it and (b) it probably has a substantial steel rebar skeleton which happens to conduct electricity very well.
