Typically, a lake would make people think of boating, fishing, and relaxing around nature. It is a nice, cool place to let your mind rest away from the urban jungle.
However, this lake hides something spectacular. Find out what this body of water has in store by viewing the story below.
For quite some time, a boy who lives near Lake Kurtna Matasjarv noticed something weird in that body of water.
The boy realized that there were tracks that lead to the lake, but no tracks were indicating that the vehicle escaped the lake.
The lake was not big enough for boating activities to happen regularly, especially since the lake is not really easy to access.
The local boy then observed some air bubbles appearing from the Lake Kurtna Matasjarv.
Because of his findings, a team started to investigate the mysterious object in the lake.
Whatever was in the lake, it was quite heavy. Thus, the people had to dig up the mud first.
At 9 in the morning, the group started to pull the massive object from the lake.
The operation lasted for eight more hours; even they used heavy equipment and strong steel cables.
To their surprise, they had just uncovered a military tank dating back to the Second World War.
Even after being there for so long, the tank is still recognizable. It weighs about 30 tons and needed to be hauled using a 68-ton dozer.
