From what I read:
Apparently ILS and approach lights not working (which isn’t necessarily of relevance during the day).
Also the approach speed seems to be pretty high in the video (could just be an impression though, I don’t know). Not sure what exactly happened here, but it must have been a really hard landing is this is the result of it.
