The early 747s had cargo doors in which the locking sectors were too thin to prevent the latches from being driven open by the electric motors in the event of an electrical malfunction. The DC-10 had a locking system that lacked strength in some components, which, along with incorrect rigging, allowed the manual lever to be forced closed while the latches were not fully engaged.

Too soon to say what the issue was on this 757.
