It's also possible there was a problem inside of the connector which could not be seen externally. I've run into this before with Molex to SATA adapters where a pin of the SATA power connector became loose and got pushed back. With a drive connected it would cause a short and the system would shut down.

Thankfully that HDD was fine but with a cheap connector or one that has been simply used a ton this can happen as I've also seen it happen on SATA HDD docks.
