At about 16 seconds his right foot leaves the pedal at the same time his
left foot suddenly swings down to the bottom.

I don't see a derailleur. I wonder if he had a hub gear that shifted
into a false neutral?

Someone showed that to me at breakfast on a miniature
screen. Now that I've watched it on a big screen I don't
think it's a mountain bike.

A chain snap would do that as well. BT.

No, but as Frank said he slipped off the pedal. I believe he slipped off
the left pedal first and that percipitated the fall. He was trying to
pedal harder and may have partially gone out of the saddle. Possibly he
wasn't used to that mode of powering a bike and messed up.

At first glance, I thought his left pedal spindle had broken - but your
explanation makes more sense.

Of course, one always has to ponder where there could be an underlying
deeper cause. Such as booze :-)
