Water damage to MB600 SEL

Hi, My beautiful second user MB 600 SEL was written off by insurance after travelling through a large puddle of water (- mid shin high). I was travelling at about 10 -15 mph and had no option but to go forward. The explanation I have had is that water from the bow wave got into the engine and caused the engine to seize. Has anyone else had or heard of this problem. I feel that this is a design problem or MB should publish this as a health warning to owners!! My older 230 TE estate regularly had to ford a small river without problems (although I did use to worry about the electrics gettin wet). Grateful for feedback.
