This anonymously submitted video shows a complication from a resident cataract surgery. The capsulorhexis radializes in the sub-incisional area and then excessive hydro-dissection is performed which allows this weakness to rip to the capsular bag equator and to the posterior capsule. Then the attempt to separate the two nuclear halves places additional stress on the capsule which then causes the posterior capsule to split wide open. The nucleus then falls into the vitreous cavity.
