Family questions ‘strong’ swimmer’s fatal snorkeling proposal


The family of a Louisiana man who died after popping the question while snorkeling doesn’t believe the man drowned.

Steven Weber Jr.’s relatives said he was a “strong” swimmer who had been snorkeling multiple times before he died Thursday proposing while on vacation in Tanzania.

Though a cause of death hasn’t been provided, his sister Mandy Hoffman said her family doesn’t believe he drowned during the proposal.

“This is all we keep talking about,” Hoffman said. “Something other happened besides him running out of breath.”
