It is probable that in this accident, the Aircraft touched down so hard, while repeating the bounce after the Pilot rejected the go-around, and suffered damage to the Aircraft.
It is probable that the reason why the Aircraft touched down so hard while repeating the bounce was that the Pilot was not able to stabilize the Aircraft during bounce by increasing / reducing the power and setting the nose attitude, and continued the same control without making a go-around.
