said it is unlikely the statue just took a nose-dive under its own weight."It has a very good center of gravity, so even if the screws at the base were to somehow loosen, the statue would still need a really good push in order to fall," he

, who will travel to Washington, D.C., next week to start restoring a statue at the U.S. Capitol Building.
