Dozens of onlookers were filmed watching the elaborate ceremony, as pallbearers made their way up a wooden ladder.
They waited for a brief moment, waiting for helpers to dress the lakkian, a tower where the deceased is placed.
As they resumed the procession, one pallbearer missed his step shifting the ladder, which collapsed almost immediately.
After he was struck, Kondorura was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Julianto Sirait, chief commissioner of the Tana Toraja resort police force, told AFP: “As the mother’s coffin was being raised to the lakkian, suddenly the ladder shifted and collapsed, the coffin fell and hit the victim.”
Local news site Khaleej Times claimed the ladder was not properly secured by local authorities.
But Kondorura’s loved ones decided not to sue officials.
Indonesian tradition requires the casket to be placed on a lakkian, a carved tower where funeral rites are read.
Such ceremonies can last for days, with services involving music, dance and the sacrifice of water buffalo.
