A Boy Noticed Something Odd In The Lake… NOBODY Expected It To Be This.

Can you start to guess what it is?

As you can see, it's a military tank, just as the boy suspected. But what's the story behind it's presence at the bottom of the lake?

in 1944, battles were fought in northeastern Estonia. 100,000 men died, and 300,000 more were wounded. During that time, the German army captured this Soviet tank.

German troops then began a retreat along the lakefront. Experts believe that the tank was then purposefully driven into the lake, their only solution to abandon it.

The effort to get the tank out of the muck took just about six hours -- no surprise, as the tank weighed about 30 tons.
