requesting analysis of flight log: drone was flying well, then dropped into the hudson river

Hi everyone, I would appreciate your help. after a few months of flying I lost my drone yesterday into the Hudson River.

My son had just completed a successful flight in the same area, took some photos of us with it hovering 10 feet away from us, then landed it and asked me if I wanted to fly it.

I took off and it was flying normally then as I was bringing it back toward me for a landing it suddenly dropped like a rock from the sky into the water.

Any help is appreciated either to learn a hard lesson or could it be an issue covered by warranty. I am still kind of in shock over losing the drone as it always flew so easily earlier. based on the video it seemed to tumble when it dropped.

Thank you!
