Giant crucifix collapses, killing Italian man
Catholic World News - April 25, 2014
In a macabre accident, a giant metal crucifix erected in memory of Pope John Paul II fell and killed a young Italian man, just a few days before the canonization of the Polish Pontiff.
The curved crucifix, reaching almost 100 feet in height, had been built in Cevo, Itally, in the foothills of the Alps.
