water leakage in hero 5

I bought my gopro hero 5 black in a best buy machine in LAX airport.. Have been using with the supersuit case to go to the water since the beginning with no issue. But 2 weeks ago i decided to go to the water (no deeper than 1 meter) without the supersuit, but with all doors properly closed. For my surprise, after 5 minutes of use, it suddenly started to leak water inside the camera... I dried immediately the camera with a towel and took the battery out. Unfortunately the camera doesn't work anymore. What can i do? Thank you
