People have been getting more and more over-the-top with their proposals, whether it's asking someone to prom or asking someone to marry you. Unfortunately this time, it ended in tragedy. A man named Steven Weber and his girlfriend Kenesha Antoine from Zachary, Louisiana were on vacation in Tanzania last week and they were staying in a hotel room where the bedroom was submerged underwater, and had windows that let you see into the ocean. So Steven decided to propose on Thursday by swimming outside of the room and holding up a sign asking Kenesha to marry him. But after the proposal, he never resurfaced. Apparently he was underwater too long and something went wrong and he drowned. Local authorities and the U.S. State Department are investigating what happened.
