The Jesus Christ Light of Sky Church performs baptisms several times each year along the Pacific coast in Santa Barbara County. But no one remembers a ceremony like this.
During the baptism Sunday morning, one of the participants got swept out to sea. Emergency crews had failed to find him by nightfall, according to news reports.
The pastor, Mauro Cervantes, told KCOY-TV that his cousin, Benito Flores, was helping him baptize a man when a rogue wave pulled him into the ocean.
