A crocodile has killed a Christian pastor while baptising indigenous people near a lake in southern Ethiopia, reports BCC.
The protestant pastor, Docho Eshete was conducting the baptising ceremony for about 80 indigenous Ethiopians on Sunday morning at Lake Abaya in Arba Minch town's Merkeb Tabya district.
"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 told the BBC. Despite several attempts were made to catch the crocodile, it escaped after biting on his legs, back and hands.
