Hi MarsSciGuy, I read the tractor belongs to a local farmer who took an established winter shortcut on a lake. Since ice isn't partularly strong this winter, and he was also pulling a heavy trailer load, he got submerged but luckily was able to escape the cabin.
I don't know whether 1968 Fords are much sought after, or was it an environmental concern, but voluntary divers attached the slings and a Finnish Army helicopter pulled the tractor up as a practice mission for free (as illustrated).
One thing is that our lakes is typically very shallow and one large object left underwater could harm fishing for a century, and everyone would know the culprit as a piece of the Häkkinen or the Kovalainen family heirloom.
