Holy Thunder Clap

Amazing Moment The World's Biggest Christ Was Struck By Lightning

Rio de Janeiro's world-famous statue of Christ the Redeemer was struck by lightning during a thunderstorm over the Brazilian city on Sunday.

The statue, which stands 39.6 metres (130ft) tall, is made of 700 tons of reinforced concrete, and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,296ft) Corcovado mountain overlooking the city, did not appear to be damaged by the hit.

I saw this in a newspaper and felt envious. Do you know I've never captured lightning in my life!
