Not a bird strike as it was earlier reported. There was a pin size hole in the radome that caused the structure to fail/collapse.

I've seen a Bird hit on a B752 radome in the exact center causing a 4-6" Dia dent.While replacing the radome,from Inside the Dent was very significant but no cracks.
But a structural collapse is a rare one.
