Buddha statue topples over crushes man
Buddhist statue topples over, crushes religious leader as he unveils it in Thailand
Village Chief Mr. Saman Chanthayothi, 52, was the guest of honor at an unveiling. But as he tugged away the cloth cover, the Buddha statue cracked at its poorly built foundation and fell on his head, killing him instantly.
The statue had allegedly been intended to bring good luck and fortune to local residents. The Buddhist statue collapsed and killed the religious leader in a freak accident (blamed on shoddy construction). He had just unveiled it. The freak accident took place in Thailand yesterday.
