An honor guard suddenly collapsed on Monday while guarding the flag-draped coffin of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who died earlier this month.

Video of the incident shows a female honor guard wobbling back and forth while standing by O’Conner’s casket. Just as the honor guard is about to collapse, a male honor guard grabs her and slowly lowers her to the ground.

It is unclear what caused the honor guard to collapse, and her condition has not been released.

The worrisome footage comes just days after Pedro Henrique, a Brazilian gospel singer, collapsed suddenly during a performance in front of a crowd at a religious festival in Brazil. He was later pronounced dead at a local medical center.

According to TMZ, the 30-year-old singer was performing “Vai Ser Tão Lindo,” when Henrique suddenly collapsed on the floor of the stage. TMZ reported that multiple people quickly rushed over to the singer to provide medical assistance to Henrique, and he was quickly transported to a local medical center. However, Henrique was declared dead by the medical center.

Video of Wednesday’s incident shows the moment the 30-year-old singer collapsed in the middle of his performance.

In an Instagram statement released Thursday that was translated by The New York Post from Portuguese, the record label wrote, “There are very difficult situations in life for which we have no explanation. We just need to understand that God’s will prevails! Pedro was a happy young man, a friend to all. An only son. A present husband and a super dedicated father…The Christian music sector is in mourning. The Todah Music family is in mourning. Heaven in chorus welcomes an illustrious son: Pedro Henrique! So long, dear brother! So long! May the Holy Spirit comfort everyone.”
