The plane had tried a landing before but could not due to some altitude and speed issues and scrapped the lower parts of the engine. Hence the black marks below the engines. After the unsuccessful attempt they would have tried giving engines a full throttle to gain momentum to gain some altitude, which might have triggered the failure. I get to know all the above points as I follow flying beast on YouTube. The gentleman himself is an experienced pilot.

There are so many unknowns. Everybody overlooks the most important one: how it all begins to unfold. How did they get themselves in so much trouble. Why were they so high on their first approach? Why did they not initiate a go around earlier?

For me that is fundamental, the rest will follow suit.

ATC reminds them three times and each time they confirm they are able to handle the situation. Something was amiss already at this stage of the flight. Were the pilots facing any problems with the plane, any problems with their altimeters, poor piloting,CRM issues? We have no clue at this point in time.

The black box and voice recorder will tell.
