Viral Video Shows Guard Faints During Queen Elizabeth II’s Wake

A video featuring a guard fainting and falling flat on his face while guarding the Queen Elizabeth II coffin has gone crazy viral on the internet.

As additional men joined him for a changeover, the man can be seen stepping aside from the scene and then taking his place again in the video.

However, a little while later he passed out, slumped forward, and splayed on the stone floor to the loud screams of visitors waiting in line to pay their last respects.

As officers responded to the man’s rescue, the BBC live broadcast also stopped working for a while.

The heartbreaking video of the scene was obtained by MandyNews.com on Twitter.

Following the queen’s passing on Thursday in Balmoral, hundreds of thousands of mourners have lined up to pay their condolences.

But the minute a guard started wavering on his feet before he fell, people at the scene screamed in horror.

The Sovereign’s Bodyguard, the Household Division, or Yeoman Warders of the Tower of London are providing round-the-clock security for the Queen’s coffin, which is lying atop a catafalque, a high platform.

See the video below.
