Camden hospital to get back statue damaged in earthquake

    Camden’s Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center will get back the statue it’s been missing for months.

    According to the Associated Press, the 30-foot Blessed Mother statue will be put back on top of the medical center. The statue was damaged by a rare earthquake in the region last summer.

    Aside from its status as a hospital fixture, the statue is also a landing beacon for the Philadelphia International Airport.
