Easter parades are something of a big deal in Alicante, Spain. In fact, during Holy Week, there are 28 of them.

But things got a little hairy during Maundy Thursday's event, when a statue of the Virgen de los Dolores took a tumble from her perch as she was being carried through the city streets.

Some of her bearers only narrowly escaped injury - but as you'll see, they swiftly raised her aloft again, with only a damaged crown to show for her topple, and continued with the procession. Nice work, chaps!
