A Louisiana man died while proposing to his girlfriend underwater in Tanzania. Steven Weber tried to hold his breath underwater for 2 minutes while proposing to his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine.

Antoine reported the tragic news on her Facebook page on Sept. 20. She said the couple took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the East African nation where they stayed at an underwater resort.

The couple booked a submerged room at Manta Resort on Pemba Island, where they watched marine life swim by their hotel window.

Antoine filmed Weber swimming to their hotel room window and presenting a note inside a Ziplock bag.

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."

The other side of the note read: "Will you please be my wife? Marry me???" Weber then swam out of the camera frame.

He passed out and died from elevated carbon dioxide levels in his blood before he could reach the surface. Weber never got the chance to hear Antoine's response.

Antoine wrote a heartbreaking tribute to Weber on Facebook.com.

"You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!"

She continued: "Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever. I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will."

Weber worked at St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He also worked part-time as a DJ.

Antoine is a successful attorney in Baton Rouge, according to her official website.
