The statue lost a finger, but that will soon be repaired.
Others have been struck by lightning, including some famous people -- and this guy, who received a lightning bolt SEVEN TIMES. It's more common than you think -- about 75 people die each year from lightning, according to SixWise.com, with another 400 or so surviving the hit.

If you're lucky, that is.
