A man has drowned in an attempt to propose to his girlfriend underwater during their “once-in-a-lifetime” holiday.
Steven Weber dived into the ocean to pop the question to Kenesha Antoine through the window of their submerged cabin in Tanzania.
Video footage shows Mr Weber pressing a piece of paper against the glass with the message: “Will you please be my wife?”
He then opened a ring box before swimming up out of view towards the surface.
Ms Antoine, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, posted the film on Facebook on Friday morning with her response: ”Yes! Yes! Yes!”
However a few hours later she revealed that he “never emerged from those depths” to hear her answer.
“We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruellest twist of fate imaginable.
“I will try to take solace in the fact that we enjoyed the most amazing bucket list experiences these past few days, and that we both were so happy and absolutely giddy with excitement in our final moments together,” she wrote.
