Man dressed as Jesus falls from cross

A man dressed as Jesus has fallen from a cross.

The actor has been named "The Flying Christ" and "Batman Christ" after he plummeted 13 feet off a cross into a crowd of gatherers, during Easter celebrations in Santa Barbara, in the south-west Guatemalan department of Suchitepequez.

Video footage has emerged on Facebook of the fake-Jesus, who has long brown hair and is semi-naked wearing just a white loincloth, attached to the wooden cross and raised high above the crowds.

He suddenly swings from the harness he's attached to and descends into the shocked crowd.

One user wrote: "That awkward moment when you're trying to be Christ, but you end up looking more like Tarzan."
