A man has drowned after proposing to his girlfriend underwater during a "bucket list" holiday in Tanzania.

Steven Weber and Kenesha Antoine were staying in a wooden cabin that had a partially submerged structure allowing them to look out under the ocean.

Footage shows the moment Mr Weber, from Baton Rouge in Louisiana, swam up to an underwater window before holding up an A4 sheet of paper asking Ms Antoine to marry him.

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!" Mr Weber, wearing a snorkel and flippers, then turned the note over to reveal words on the other side which read: "Will you please be my wife? Marry me???" He then pulled an engagement ring out of his pocket before swimming out of view.

He then pulls out a ring and opens the box as Antoine excitedly laughs in the background.

'Just a couple days before you died, you said to me, “I’ve seen a few cancer patients on this trip, and it dawned on me that this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing that people want to experience before they die. And here we are in the prime of our lives doing this. We are so blessed".'

'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.'

Ms Antoine subsequently posted footage of the proposal on Facebook where she is seen laughing with joy, along with the comment: "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

But the would-be bride later posted an update revealing he had died - with Ms Antoine wrote that he "never emerged from those depths". .
