A video is circulating on social media where a 20 year old young man has drowned to death just after he was baptized.
In the video, the Pastor beckons on the young man to step into the river after another gentleman had finished being baptized. The deceased went through the process of baptism but lost balance as he was about to step out of the river.
The Pastor who also lost balance tried to help the young man out of the water, but couldn’t help because the deceased had already began struggling for his life.
From this point, the one recoding the video placed his phone down and joined in the rescue team. From voices in the background, the immediate rescue team who were not swimmers began calling for help from the indigenes who couldn’t do much to salvage the situation as they couldn’t really tell where the young man was.
This sad episode is believed to have happened in the Weija River.
