Watch the incredible moment a huge bolt of lightning strikes 125ft Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil!

The statue is visited by nearly two million people every year and, oddly enough, it's the third time in 15 years it has been hit by such a strike.

Still a rare occurrence, the bolt struck the head of the religious figure on February 10, illuminating it a flash that's now seen by millions across the globe.
