Phew, missing statue of St Francis is found


The 3.5-ton underwater statue of Saint Francis of Paola has been found, that disappeared in December. A patrol boat spotted a small floating buoy some 200 metres from the place where the statue was originally located, members of the Paola Divers Unit were called, and found the statue tied to the buoy’s mooring line, possibly dragged there by the net of a fishing boat. The statue is in good condition, but an arm is broken. Via
