It happened something similar to me as in the picture below. Last year I won first place in a school contest, there were important people from school, the principle and his assitants, people from the local government so I had to dress up, I had never worn high heels in my life, my mother convinced me to do it, everytime I walked with them I looked like if I were drunk, I balanced from one side to other. I am that kind of girl who is always wearing casual clothes, jeans, t-shirts and sneakers. That day I was nervous, the ceremony took place in a big auditorium, full of students and strangers, the time came when I was called to go up to the stage and receive my award but while I was coming down , my ankle twisted and I fell off the stairs, I was wearing a skirt so everybody could see my underware. That was the most embarrassing moment ever!
See the highlighted expressions:while I was coming down the stage, my ankle twisted and I fell off the stairs
this expression refers to a past continuous action, SOMETHING YOU CONTINUE DOING BUT IN AN SPECIFIC TIME IN PAST.
Just when I came home from school axhausted and starving, all my family was having dinner, so cool!
