A 45-year-old man who volunteered to clean a 600-pound marble crucifix has filed a lawsuit against his former parish after the large statue fell on him.

The man’s right leg was crushed so severely that doctors had to amputate.

A lawyer for the man from New York claims the screw that was holding the crucifix in place was “useless.” There was no anchoring system to support the massive statue. He is seeking $3 million in damages.
