האיש הרע נפל לתוך המים וטבע should be acceptable

Yes. Also, I would never say נפל במים in the sense of "fell into the water", I would say נפל למים. But possibly this is a matter of different linguistic communities, maybe someone else would comment on that.

I put the same thing and was rejected. נפל במים is wrong so I have reported it. They also need to accept איש.
