Don't bother God with trivia

Austria: A devout Catholic who went to church to pray after being rescued from a lift was found dead after an unfortunate accident:

A devout Catholic who popped into church to thank God for a his rescue from a lift was crushed to death by a 860lb stone altar...

[Police spokesman Roman] Hahslinger concluded: He seems to have embraced a stone pillar on which the stone altar was perched and it fell on him, killing him instantly. We have found his fingerprints on the pillar. We are now investigating the case further.

God clearly prefers that thanks go to the rescuers, not Him.
