Short of a miracle, Benito Flores is lost at sea and must be presumed dead. He gave his life to help other people get
all wet baptized.
A California man remains missing a day after he was swept out to sea during an ocean baptism.
Benito Flores, 43, was among several people helping his cousin, Pastor Maurigro Cervantes, baptize a man near the Guadalupe Dunes Preserve north of Santa Barbara.
Two others were swept out by a huge wave but were able to swim to shore.
