A pastor performed a baptism in a lake. A crocodile killed him.


A Protestant pastor was killed by a crocodile during a baptism ceremony in an Ethiopian lake, according to the BBC.

Docho Eshete and about 80 members of his congregation gathered Sunday morning at the southern end of Lake Abaya — close to a national park where enormous crocodiles have been reported to cover the shore.

Normally, the animals are a tourist draw. But the Telegraph reported that Lake Abaya has lately had a shortage of fish, and the crocodiles have become aggressive toward humans, who have little chance to spot them in the lake’s murky red waters.
