Ethiopia: Crocodile Kills Pastor After Lake Baptism Gone Wrong



A Crocodile has killed a Protestant pastor who was baptising followers near a lake in southern Ethiopia.
Docho Eshete was conducting a baptismal ceremony for about 80 members of his church on Sunday morning at Lake Abaya in Arba Minch town’s Merkeb Tabya district.

Residents reported that dreadful crocodile leapt from the water during the baptism and pounced on him.
Pastor Docho died after being bitten on his legs, back and hands.

“He baptised the first person and he passed on to another one. All of a sudden, a crocodile jumped out of the lake and grabbed the pastor,” local resident Ketema Kairo narrated.
