Crocodile mauls pastor to death during baptism ceremony at lake

A holy ceremony turned into a hellish nightmare after a crocodile killed a pastor as he was baptizing followers in an Ethiopia lake.

A crocodile has killed a Protestant pastor while he was baptising people at a lake in Ethiopia.

Despite the best efforts of parishioners and bystanders, the pastor was bitten on his legs, back and arms and could not be saved. But UK newspaper the Daily Telegraph reported that Lake Abaya has lately experienced a shortage of fish, and the crocodiles have become aggressive towards humans, who have little chance to see them in the lake's murky red waters.

"He baptized the first person and he passed on to another one", local resident Ketema Kairo said, according to the BBC.

A water baptism ceremony held near a lake turned into a horrific tragedy when the pastor was reportedly grabbed by a crocodile Sunday.

Fishermen attempted to rescue Docho, but they only managed to prevent the crocodile from taking his body with fishing nets.

Lake Abaya is known to have a large population of crocodiles.

Crocodile attacks are common in Africa, the paper reported, with numerous victims being women washing clothes.
