A US man drowned attempting an underwater marriage proposal while on holiday with his girlfriend.
Haunting footage shows Steven Weber Jr., of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, popping the question to his
partner in a swimming pool in Tanzania, East Africa, this week. The video ends before the American, who worked at an addiction centre in Louisiana, started to drown.
It is believed he ran out of breath and fell unconscious underwater in the pool which had glass windows on its side. His heartbroken girlfriend Kenesha Antoine, who is an attorney, posted about the tragedy on Facebook.
She wrote: “There are no words adequate enough to honour the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber, Jr. You were a bright light to everyone you encountered. “You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!”
