Looking at the underwater photograph, the aft fuselage appears to have suffered pretty substantial damage so perhaps it was pressure of the water, maybe at the time of impact, that forced the door...

They haven't said that the aeroplane is intact, but that most of it appears to be in one place. Wouldn't that suggest that it may have entered the water pretty much vertically which might be...

This accident seems sadly reminiscent of the Malibu Mirage crash in Somerset in Nov 15 - that also involved a family travelling to an event in unsuitable weather.
