A Louisiana man drowned after proposing to his girlfriend underwater during a holiday in Tanzania.
Steven Weber and his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine, were staying in a wooden cabin with a bedroom submerged beneath the ocean surface in Pemba Island, off the east coast of Africa.
According to CNN report, Weber died minutes after he asked Kenesha Antoine to marry him.
Weber proposed by swimming underwater and holding a note against the bedroom windows before presenting a ring, according to a video Kenesha posted on Facebook.
Later, Kenesha took to Facebook in an emotional post to announce his death and explain she never had the chance to tell him yes.

The resort, where the couple was staying, issued a statement on confirming the death.
"Our sincerest condolences, thoughts, and prayers are with his girlfriend, families and friends impacted by this tragic accident," Matthew Saus, the CEO of Manta Resort was quoted as saying by CNN.
