An American couple’s romantic dream vacation took a devastating turn after a man drowned while proposing to his girlfriend.
Steven Weber Jr. and his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine, were on holiday in Tanzania, staying in a submerged cabin at the Manta Resort, off Pemba Island.
They had booked four nights at the resort’s underwater room, which lies approximately 250m (820ft) from the shore.
Costing $1,700-a-night (£1,300), the cabin is anchored in water around 10m (32ft).
A video shows Weber diving under water to ask Antoine to marry him. He presses a hand-written proposal note against the cabin window as Antoine films from inside.
Antoine, announced the devastating news on Facebook that her boyfriend, Steven Weber Jr., drowned while asking her to marry him in an underwater proposal gone wrong.
According to Antoine’s Facebook post, the note read, “I can’t hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you, but everything I love about you, I love more every day.”
On the other side of the note, Weber asked Antoine to marry him and pulls out a ring in a box.
In the video, she says, “Yes,” and Weber swims out of the frame but never emerged from the water.
“You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer. ‘Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!’” Antoine wrote.
