GoPro 5 leaking

I’m so disappointed my GoPro was in the water and it leaked through the battery part. It was really hot before this and started turning off and then the screen wouldn’t work.

This isn’t suppose to happen and everything was shut closed so it shouldn’t have leaked.

What do I do?

Re: GoPro 5 leaking

Exactly I’ve already emailed and gotten no reply.

Is extremely misleading to label a camera as waterproof when it is clearly not. I want my money back and I’m disappointed to have spent years being a loyal supporter of GoPro.
