A Zimbabwean pastor who was trying to demonstrate how Jesus Christ walked on water by crossing a river on foot was eaten alive by crocodiles Saturday morning, according to a report from Daily Post.
The pastor, identified as Jonathan Mthethwa, of the Saint of the Last Days Church, brought his congregation to the area known locally as Crocodile River before attempting his biblical recreation.
According to witnesses, the pastor entered the water and waded out approximately 30 meters before attempting to make his way to the surface.
Unfortunately, the cleric drowned as three crocodiles pounced and devoured him, finishing him in a couple of minutes.
The report also said only his sandals and underwear were recovered.
Deacon Nkosi, a member of the church, told The Herald Zimbabwe, "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 three large crocodiles in front of us."
"We still don't understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week."
Emergency services arrived 30 minutes after the incident, but the pastor was already dead.
