Tolkien's mistake ??? Can't Post

Today I was watching LOTR The Two Towers and I Realized something. The famous balrog, Gothmog was killed by Ecthalion when he knocked him into the water. In both movie and the book Durin's Bane falls into water in lowest dungeon with Gandalf while fighting him but "from the lowest dungeon to the highest peak" they still fought. So how did the Lord of all balrogs die when he fell into the water and durin's bane survive thousand meter fall into cold water in the lowest dungeon. Wink
