RIO DE JANEIRO – The Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world and a symbol of hope, love and resilience for many people.
Despite its iconic status, the Brazilian Statue of Jesus Christ has suffered significant damage over the years.
In 2008, the statue was struck by lightning and crushed its right thumb. In 2014, another lightning strike caused damage to his head.
Most recently, on February 10, 2023, the statue was again struck by lightning in the head.
Despite these challenges, the Brazilian government and local people have made efforts to protect the statue and return it to its original condition.
It is hoped that the statue of Jesus Christ will continue to inspire people around the world for generations to come despite being frequently struck by lightning.
Lightning strikes can be very damaging, especially when it comes to tall buildings like the Christ the Redeemer statue.
