A military tank was submerged in a creek in Taiwan on Tuesday after it fell off a bridge ahead of the country's annual military exercise.

Three soldiers were reported dead and one survived after being sent to a local hospital.

Officials were at the site, investigating the accident, with the tank still submerged in water, toppled on its turret.

The tank was returning to base after a military drill that was part of preparations for the Han Kuang military exercise that will take place from August 22 to 26.
