  • N.Y. man who lost leg in crucifix mishap sues church

    A trial has been scheduled for early next year in the lawsuit filed against an upstate New York church by a man whose leg had to be amputated after a 600-pound crucifix fell on him.

  • David Jiminez lost his leg from the same crucifix where he prayed while his wife was recovering from cancer. The Mexican immigrant is now seeking $3 million from the church where he was hurt while cleaning the crucifix, but the Archdiocese of New York says it has no liability and is challenging his lawsuit.

On Memorial Day 2010, he was scrubbing grime off the cross when the 600-pound marble statuary toppled over and crushed his right leg.
