Thor attacks Jesus in Rio, damages a thumb

A vicious lightning strike from the heavens hurt Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Christ the Redeemer statue during an electrical storm on Thursday night.

The 125-foot-tall figure that presides over the Brazilian city had its right thumb damaged when a lightning bolt struck its outstretched hand.

Father Omar, of The Archdiocese of Rio, who manages the shrine that holds the statue, said that the icon, which sits atop the 2000-foot Corcovado mountain, is frequently hit by lightning during storms.

The middle finger of the right hand was also chipped by lightning last month.
