Earlier this afternoon, a statue in Recoleta Cemetery fell on top of a young pedestrian. Video footage via C5N shows the younger looking individual laying on the ground, trapped beneath the statue. Talk about dead weight.
Little is known about why the statue fell, if the youth was climbing it or if the statue had structural damage. The severity of the accident is unknown, but the injured was responsive.
Whether it was an accident or a bit of karma linked to a growing trend of cemetery selfies, the incident certainly shook things up.
