Any idea? Pilot error?

Makes sense. Do you think the airline charged the pax for getting another drink?I suppose its the last thing you expect, going on a plane and ending up going swimming. Was there anyone injured or killed in this accident.

Check out http://www.aviation-safety.net and they've got detailed reports on specific accidents. I remember that they've got quite a detailed one on this accident too.

I don't know, but this might be their way to wash the planes? 

No, here's the story...

The aircraft skidded off rain-soaked runway 29 while landing at Salgado Filho Int'l Airport. 20 of the 111 passengers and crew were injured, most during the evacuation via the escape slides. A thunderstorm was passing over the airport at the time of the accident.
