A Perfect Shot
Michael Calabrese, is the name of the person who captured the shocking moment, while working aboard the Miss New York led by Statue Cruises, as confirmed by the USA Today portal.
“He was in the right place at the right time,” Calabrese told the portal, adding that he used his phone camera to record the statue in the midst of the storm. His love for the weather and his instincts as a photographer were what led him to take out his cell phone and start recording: “I did everything possible to keep him as still as possible and contain my emotion.”
The publication has gone viral, to such an extent that it has exceeded 2 million views on the digital platform.
