A pizza parlor worker, described as ‘deeply religious’, was crushed by a 600 pound crucifix in Newburgh, New York.  David Jimenez believes that his devotion to the crucifix doctors and medical technology was responsible for his wife being cured of ovarian cancer.

Because of his devotion and months of prayer, Jimenez received permission to clean the crucifix, which promptly fell upon him as it was not securely anchored.  Doctors were unable to save his leg and Jimenez is now suing the archdiocese.
