January 14, 2014

Early this morning, residents of Rio de Janeiro were treated to a dazzling display as a flash storm sent bolts of lightning over the city's famous statue of Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado mountain. There are no reports that the 30-metre statue sustained any damage, unlike in 2008, when its fingers and eyebrows required restoration following a lightning strike. The 635-tonne figure of Christ was completed in 1931 and was declared one of the New Seven Wonders Of The World in 2007.
