A Louisiana man drowned while trying to make an underwater marriage proposal to his girlfriend while the couple was on vacation.
Steven Weber Jr., of Baton Rouge, died this week while proposing to his girlfriend Kenesha Antoine underwater while in Tanzania, Daily Mail reports.
Antoine, an attorney, posted about the tragic accident on her Facebook page early on Friday, September 20, 2019, with photos and videos of the proposal.
She wrote: ‘There are no words adequate enough to honor 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!!”.’
‘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 cruelest twist of fate imaginable.’
In the video, Weber can be seen swimming underwater and holding a Ziploc bag with a handwritten note inside.
One side reads: ‘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 back, Weber asked Antoine to marry him.
He then pulls out a ring and opens the box as Antoine excitedly laughs in the background.
