No. We cannot get oxygen from water. The oxygen that forms part of the water itself is locked away in H2O molecules and our bodies have no way of extracting it. Most water does contain dissolved oxygen, but since we do not have gills we cannot extract that either.

Fish extract dissolved oxygen from the water by passing the water through their gill slits. Inside the gills is very thin tissue that can 'grab' oxygen right out of the water and put carbon dioxide waste into the water.

How can a body of water can be depleted of its oxygen?

Water can be depleted of it's oxygen by a number of different ways. Short of putting the water in a vacuum and "sucking" the dissolved oxygen out, oxygen-breathing organisms such as fish take oxygen from the water through respiration, for example. It is unlikely a large body of water to become completely deoxygenated due to the presence of photosynthetic aquatic organisms (plants) and the fact that oxygen is also dissolved in the water at the water's surface.
