The accident came just days before a historic canonization will see late pope, John Paul II, to whom the crucifix was dedicated, declared a saint.

The 98-foot-high wooden and concrete cross fell during a ceremony in the Italian Alpine village of Cevo on Thursday, killing 21-year-old student Marco Gusmini. Another man was taken to hospital. source

 
The structure was dedicated to John Paul II on his visit to the region in 1998.
