because, the gravity and density in water is much less then in normal air. so if someone or something above water is heavy, then under water it will seem alot less heavy. and another reason might be because many objects have air in them and in water air will float to the top. that's why cruise ships float and not sink, because of the air in them, it keeps them afloat. so if ur handling something under water that has air in it, its gonna seem alot lighter because its "trying" to get to the surface.

Why does an stone go under the water?

Because the stone weighs more than the same volume of water. If you fill a container to the brim with water, then put a stone into the water and catch the water that overflows from the container, that overflowed water will weigh less than the stone does. If you did the same thing with a cork, and used a pin to push the cork under the surface of the water, the overflowed water would weigh more than the cork.

because the upthrust force of the water acting on the stone was pushing the stone upwards meaning it was acting against the downwards weight of the stone (its weight). This meant that the downwards force was decreased and therefore felt lighter :)

What is a stone's mass in water?

The mass of a stone in water is the mass of the stone outside water. The mass of an object is always its mass. (This assumes we are not discussing the theory of relativity.) On Earth, or the Moon or in water or not, mass is mass. What might be relevant, however, is the weight of a stone in water compared to the weight of a stone outside the water. Weight and mass are different. If you hold a stone in water and hold the same stone in air, you can feel a difference in the force you must apply to support the stone. In water, the stone feels a buoyant force equal the the weight of the water displaced. That is Archimedes principle. There is a difference in the apparent weight of a stone in water and a stone out of water equal to the eight of the water displaced.

Why doesn't a stone float?

The stone is heavier than the same volume of water. In short the density of the stone is more than the water. So the stone does not float on the water.
