Yesterday began the repairs of the Christ the Redeemer located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when the giant structure was impacted by a lighting and damaged part of his arm, one of his fingers and a commemorative plaque.
The Archdiocese of the city announced that it is expected the works to last almost a month. They explained that operators are professionals specialized in rappelling and mountaineering, in order to avoid the use of scaffolds.
The statue was built in 1931 in the top of the Hill of Corcovado. It was elected in 2007 as one of the seven wonders of the modern world through the Internet around the world, and it is also a historical heritage of Brazil and receives about 700,000 tourists each year.
