Crushing irony

WWJTD posted a link to this story today. A New York man prayed at a crucifix for months, asking that his wife be cured of ovarian cancer. She eventually recovered, and he "attributed the cure to his devotion to that cross." In the spirit of gratitude, he got permission to clean the "long neglected" crucifix. Alas, the poorly maintained statue dislodged and toppled onto him, crushing his leg, which had to be amputated.

This is the sort of thing that can only be explained by either random chance, or a really capricious and mean-spirited god. I'm much happier believing the former.
