Media reports that doctor snapped finger off statue


Florence, August 7 - The American tourist who broke
a finger off a 500-year-old statue in a Florence museum this
week is an emergency-room surgeon in Connecticut, a British
newspaper reported Wednesday.
The Daily Mail reported that Patrick Broderick, 56, of New
Fairfield, Connecticut was arrested in front of his family after
accidentally snapping the finger of a statue when he touched it.
The newspaper quoted museum staff saying the man was
apparently trying to measure his own hand against that of the
statue of the Virgin Mary in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.
The statue was part of a late 14th or 15th century marble
sculptural group by Giovanni d'Ambrogio.
A security officer apparently tried to stop Broderick from
touching the art work but was too late.
The man has apologized and according to the Daily Mail, he
was later released from custody and will not face any penalties.
