Crocodile Kills Ethiopian Pastor During Baptism

Crocodile

Lake Abaya is well known for having a large crocodile population.

"He baptized the first person and he passed on to another one", local resident Ketema Kairo said, according to the BBC.

Pastor Docho died after being bitten on his legs, back and hands.

Even after their continuous attempts, fishermen and locals failed to salvage pastor Docho, police said.

Eshete was carrying out a baptism when the crocodile appeared.

"All of a sudden, a crocodile jumped out of the lake and grabbed the pastor, pushing aside the person he was baptising". The crocodile then escaped the nets and remains in the lake.

An Israeli conservationist did not think any crocodiles would dare attack his canoe when he took it out on the Ethiopia's Omo River in 2014, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Tragedy struck a mass baptism in an African lake when a crocodile leaped from the water and killed the presiding pastor.

Some of the predators can grow up to six metres in length and weigh as much as 1000kgs.

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.
