WACO, Tex. -- A pastor performing a baptism was electrocuted inside his church after grabbing a microphone while partially submerged, a church employee said.
The Rev. Kyle Lake, 33, was standing in water up to his shoulder in a baptismal at University Baptist Church when he was electrocuted, said Jamie Dudley, a church business administrator and wife of another pastor there.
The woman Lake was baptizing was not injured, Dudley said. About 800 people attended the morning service.
