California man swept out to sea

8 posts in this topic

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

A California man was feared dead after he was swept out to sea during a beach baptism on Sunday, officials said.

Benito Flores, 43, was helping his cousin Pastor Maurigro Cervantes perform the religious ceremony on a man at Guadalupe beach when a hellacious wave toppled the trio.

“A big wave came and took Benito,” Cervantes, of Jesus Christ Light of the Sky,

“I tried to take him out. He was heavy and then another big wave came.”

The current pulled Flores away from the shore at the Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve about 70 miles north

of Santa Barbara and hasn’t been seen since.

Rescue crews were expected to return to the scene on Monday to search for the missing man.

Cervantes said that about 25 people were at the ceremony, which he said he performs about two or three times a year.

The path is narrow, but the sea is for from shallow.

Maybe that fellow experienced a "coming to Jesus" moment?

Probably a lot of people will interpret what happened as God being mad at him for some reason, which is idiotic.

if there were miracles, then the sea would split apart and a path for the person to walk back onto the beach

We need a certain kind of person to do that, ...so far only 1 man has done it, ( allegedly) and its never been done since.

I hope they consider future baptism ceremonies in lake. Less likely to be swept by waves that way.
