Woman knocks down Pope at Christmas Eve Mass (video)
So some "unbalanced" lady knocks down the Pope as he was entering St. Peter's to celebrate Midnight Mass. So was the woman in the red dress "imbalanced" due to some goofy thing in her brain OR was she "unbalanced" because her high heels were too tall and she fell over into the Pope's lap? (Watch the Italian raw footage here.)
A woman jumped the barriers in St. Peter's Basilica and knocked down Pope Benedict XVI as he walked down the main aisle to begin Christmas Eve Mass on Thursday.
Benedettini said the woman who pushed the pope appeared to be mentally unstable and had been arrested by Vatican police. He said she also knocked down Cardinal Roger Etchegaray, who was taken to hospital for a check up.
