Man crushed to death in Italy by crucifix built for John Paul II

A 21-year old man in northern Italy has been crushed to death by a crucifix built to honour Pope John Paul II

It happened just three days before John Paul will be canonized in Rome.

Part of the 30m-high sculpture collapsed at a ceremony near the town of Cevo to mark the canonisation.

The crucifix was built to commemorate the Pope’s visit to the area in 1998.
