Default Why am I falling on my butt? c&j

Twice tonight I cleaned the weight, caught it in a solid rack then fell right on my ass. First one was with 245#, I was able to sit there with the weight still racked and then dump it off safely. The second time was at 275# and I didnt have the same outcome. Fell on my ass then went straight to my back and the bar landed directly above my neck.

Does anyone have any input as to why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?
