    Texas pastor electrocuted during baptism

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    WACO, Texas -- A pastor performing a baptism was electrocuted inside his church Sunday morning 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.

    Doctors in the congregation performed chest compressions, she said. Lake was taken by ambulance to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center, where nursing supervisor Pat Mahl said he was pronounced dead.

    The woman Lake was baptizing was not injured, Dudley said.

    Just heard about that on Fox News. That is really sad. My prayers are with his family and the Church.

    Prayers...I guess a good way to go - quick and definitely in the course of doing the Lord's work - but still a tragedy especially for one so young, and my prayers are with his family and congregation
