In this particular case the glue that holds the granite parts together dried, got brittle and cause the different pieces to fall off. Water then leaks in between the seams of the different parts that constitute the countertop.
As you can see the metal rod that helps most granite countertops hold together and it's usually on the edge of the piece, got rusted due to the exposure to rain, humidity, air and sun.
The weight of the pieces caused the pieces to fall and break as you can see in the top graphic.
