Video from an 'amateur' photographer showing the plane on approach.
Note the white-water, likely being blown up from engine thrust.

Speculation elsewhere has the plane's approach speed to less than 90 knots, and Boeing states the 777 has an approach speed of over 130 knots. Basically meaning the plane stalled and couldn't get enough speed and lift to reach the runway safely.
