This is the staggering moment that the 100-foot tall statue of Jesus that towers over Rio de Janeiro was hit by lightning.
The Christ the Redeemer statue was struck in the early hours of Wednesday morning as a spectacular electrical storm lit up the sky.
The iconic 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.
Wow! I never EVER seen anything like this! Freaking incredible I mean who would'a thought this could happen to Jesus WOW. I wish I could give you 50 stars and flags. you rock!
