    The tank wasn't artificial, the pond was.

    Or did you mean a water-tank by tank?

    Well, let's say, a battle tank sank in a water tank.

    In any case, I believe there were some technical snags and the crew got trapped or the hatches could not be opened on time. Usually there are people around to rescue. God knows what exactly happened.

    RIP to the crew.
