ETHIOPIA: Crocodile Kills Pastor While Doing The Work Of God

A crocodile has killed a Protestant pastor who was baptising followers near a lake in southern Ethiopia.

Docho Eshete was conducting the ceremony for about 80 people on Sunday morning at Lake Abaya in Arba Minch town’s Merkeb Tabya district.

Residents and police said a crocodile sneaked from the water during the baptism and attacked 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 residents said.

Despite huge efforts, fishermen and residents could not save pastor Docho, police said.

They used fishing nets to prevent the crocodile from taking the pastor’s body into the lake.

The crocodile escaped.
