0004551: Body at bottom of pond dissapears when pond is drained
This has happened to me twice since the introduction of ghosts.

Urist gets in a fight near a body of still water. He's wounded and somehow ends up at the bottom of the pond. The pond is usually near a defensive ditch so I can easily tunnel in, drain it and, I think retrieve Urist's corpse for a decent burial.

When I breach the pond and the water starts to move, the body dissapears from the map, inventory, everything. I was once left with a hand (severed premortem and also submerged) and nothing else.
Get someone killed into a pond.

Drain it by tunneling into a nearby hillside.

No tags attached.

Indeed. It is from the water pushing the corpse/items when you tunnel into the pond.
