Question about Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera
Delicate electronics and acid (salt water) make poor companions. Any time you get a modern camera anywhere near the ocean it's only a matter of time until it's gets just a drop or two of sea water in the wrong place. One must consider a underwater camera a expendable item. As a retired SCUBA instructor/dive guide and repair tech, I, knowing exactly what to do and how to carefully prep a camera for under water use, have killed several.
Likely your son had a speck of dust or lint or a hair across the sealing surfaces when he closed up the camera. That's all it takes.
Contact the company about repair, but be ready to say "it's not worth it" and just get another camera. They ALL leak eventually, IMHO.
