A man who claimed to be a prophet drowned and was later torn apart by crocodiles while being baptized.
The victim’s bones were discovered surrounded by crocodiles in the Olifants River in Limpopo, South Africa, on Sunday, according to MailOnline.
The 48-year-old man from Atok drowned during a prayer ceremony with two others days ago.
As they prayed, “One prophet suddenly experienced difficulties and drowned in the crocodile-infested river.” Police spokesperson, Col Malesela Ledwaba, narrated the event.
“It is suspected that he was attacked by crocodiles during the baptism ceremony,” Col Ledwaba added.
Police said the man was one of three ‘prophets’ who went to the overflowing river to conduct the service last Sunday.
