Man Gets Swept Out To Sea During Baptism
Posted April 1st, 2014 @ 8:21am

A California man is still missing after he was swept out to sea while assisting with a beach baptism Sunday morning. Benito Flores, 43, was helping the pastor, his cousin, baptize a man at the Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve near Santa Maria. "A big wave came and took Benito," Pastor Maurigro Cervantes says. "I tried to take him out, he was heavy and then another big wave came." That one swept Flores from the shore. Search and rescue teams responded, along with helicopters and the Coast Guard. Flores had not been found as of last night.
