Romanian Priest Drowns Baby in Baptism

The Sun reported yesterday that a Romanian priest incorrectly carried out a baptismal procedure and drowned a baby. I think only adults should undergo baptism by immersion and babies should just be sprinkled with water.

A PRIEST has been accused of drowning a baby as he BAPTISED the tiny tot.

The holy man is being quizzed after the baby's parents claimed he accidentally drowned their son at the ceremony.

Witnesses claim Father Valentin did not cover the six-week-old tot's mouth before immersing him in the font.

The priest denies being to blame for baby's death after the baptism in the Rascani district in north-western Moldova, Eastern Europe.
