A Zimbabwean pastor who was trying to demonstrate Jesus’ miracle of walking on water has been eaten alive by three crocodiles, reports The Daily Mail. Jonathan Mthethwa of the Saint of the Last Days church brought his congregation to the area known locally as ‘Crocodile River’ before trying to reenact the well-known Biblical story.
The pastor reportedly waded out into the water for 30 metres before trying to get to the surface. However, three crocodiles quickly pounced and devoured him. Witnesses describe how only his sandals and underwear floated to the surface. Eyewitness Deacon Nkosi said: “The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week.”
“He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by 3 large crocodiles in front of us.”
“We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes”
“All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.”
By the time emergency services arrived, the pastor was gone.
