A pastor in Zimbabwe who tried to walk on water like Jesus Christ did died after he got eaten by three crocodiles at the Crocodile River while his congregants watched.

On May 13, Saint of the Last Days Church pastor Jonathan Mthethwa tried to show his congregants what a biblical miracle looked like by imitating Jesus Christ's feat of walking on water. Unfortunately, he drowned in the White River Mpumalanga (Crocodile River) and his church members saw how three crocodiles ate him, "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," church member Deacon Nkosi said. "We still don't understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week."

Nkosi said the pastor was gone in a couple of minutes. They only saw his sandals and underwear floating in the river when the crocodiles had finished feasting on the pastor. Emergency crew arrived at the scene 30 minutes after the incident, but there was nothing they could do since Pastor Mthethwa was already dead.

My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave."
