On June 14, 2010 the 60 foot statue of Jesus entitled, King of Kings in Monroe Ohio, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground; all that was left of the fiberglass and Styrofoam structure was the metal framework.
The statue itself showed only the upper half of Christ as though He was rising up out of the ground with outstretched hands behind the baptismal pool.
