David Jiminez is seen in an undated photo provided by the the Kitson Law Firm. Jiminez, 43, was so elated over his wife's recovery from cancer that he offered to clean the large crucifix outside St. Patrick's Church in the city of Newburgh, N.Y., where he spent many hours praying for her to beat the disease. He was scrubbing grime off the 600-pound marble cross when it toppled onto him, crushing his right leg, which had to be amputated. Jimenez is now suing the Roman Catholic church where he was hurt, and his $3 million lawsuit is scheduled to go to trial next year. (AP Photo/Kitson Law Firm)
