Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage, the lights, the soil, the type of bonsai, or any other information to help me to identify the issue.

Bonsai is, simply, a method of pruning. Problems will need to be addressed according the the genus and species of tree. Typical issues will be over/underwatering, lack of proper light spectrum, too much light, too little humidity, disease, nutrient deficiency, or many other issues. Unfortunately, I do not have enough information to give you any recommendation on what has gone wrong.

In the meantime, this collection of articles will help you with the art of bonsai and culture practices:
