If you neglect the frictional(viscous) force, then two forces act on the body.

1) The force of gravity which is equal to the mass of the body multiplied by g.

2)The upthrust or the buoyant force which acts due to the body trying to displace the water and get inside. Water or any fluid resist that and that's why they push the body upwards.

I hope that helps.
