Pastor Fatally Electrocuted While Performing Baptism

from KCEN-TV

Church members, friends, and the Baylor community filled First Baptist Church in Waco to mourn the loss of Pastor Kyle Lake. Lake died Sunday after being electrocuted during a baptism at University Baptist Church.

A church worker says Lake was electrocuted when he grabbed a microphone while partially submerged for the baptism. Officials aren't sure if a short in Lake's microphone caused the deadly accident.

Doctors attending the service rushed to help Lake, who collapsed. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The woman who Lake was baptizing apparently had not stepped into the water. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution but was not seriously injured.
