Villagers crushed as giant Hindu statue falls on its back

A 108-foot statue of the Hindu god Krishna came crashing down on its back, killing 2 workers, 1 passerby, and injuring 12 others.

The temple, situated in Narshingpur, a village outside of Delhi, took six years to build, costing the villagers and the people in the surrounding district $417,000.
