Crocodile Kills Pastor During Baptism Service | Faith

Abaya Lake

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

Docho Eshete and about 80 people gathered at Lake Abaya in Arba Minch when the attack happened.

The Lonely Planet warns the crocodiles can be aggressive towards people and animals because the lake has few fish.

"He baptised the first person and he passed on to another one", said eyewitness Ketema Kairo.

Docho Eshete dies right after the crocodile bites his back and limbs.

A pastor performing a mass lakeside baptism was attacked and killed by a crocodile in Ethiopia.

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

Members of the congregation, as well as fishermen on the lake, attempted to rescue the clergyman - an nearly impossible task.

The "reddish-brown" water also makes it hard to spot crocodiles in the vicinity, per the Telegraph.

Despite their efforts to block the crocodile with their nets, by the time they reached Mr Eshetem he was already dead.

The one that attacked Docho was likely a Nile crocodile, a species blamed for more than 300 attacks on humans in Africa each year, reports the Independent.
