New life for "Touchdown Jesus"


The statue known as "Touchdown Jesus" on Interstate 75 north of Cincinnati is getting another life.

Touchdown Jesus burned to the ground in June, after it was struck by lightning.

Reports show the new statue will be 51-feet tall and re-named "Come Unto Me."

Instead of reaching up like the old one, the new statue will point out with water flowing out of the rock into a reflecting pool.

The new statue will also have a lightning suppressions system installed.
