HOPKINTON (CBS) – They are calling it a Christmas miracle of sorts at a Hopkinton assisted living center. That is where a four-foot Virgin Mary emerged out of the ground.

The concrete statue was unearthed last week as constructioncrews dug up the area next to the Golden Pond assisted living facility.

It is in remarkable condition, since it was likely underground for at least twenty years, according to the facility’s executive director Bill Marr.
