My Thoughts: This is the first time I recall seeing a story like this. It begs the questions... Accident or Not? Regardless, it should encourage us all to think about our baptismals and the safety precautions that are in place around them. Some churches have large baptismals similar to a hot tub or swimming pool, while other denominations simply have a large bowl for a sprinkling. 

If you have a large baptismal...

Do you keep water in your baptismal when not in use?
Is your baptismal open or closed when not in use?
Is there a way to lock the lid of the baptismal?
Is the area monitored by CCTV?
