The 100-foot tall statue of Jesus, also called The Christ the Redeemer statue,that towers over Rio de Janeiro was struck in the early hours of Wednesday Jan 16th 2014 as a spectacular electrical storm lit up the sky.
It struck off one of its fingers.
The statue is the largest stone-work of Jesus ever built and stands more than 2,000 feet above Rio on top of the Corcovado Hill. The statue is made of 700 tonnes of reinforced concrete.
It was first hit by lightning in February 2008 and had to undergo a extensive restoration. The lightening the bolt had damaged its head and chipped the right thumb
