How did someone manage to buy the Google.com domain?

A guy recently bought google.com domain. He only “had” it for a few minutes, apparently, but how was he able to purchase the domain at all?
Here's the link with Sanmay Ved's account of how he did it, look like some glitch, but haven't seen anything on what was the reason for this vulnerability. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/i-purchased-domain-googlecom-via-google-domains-sanmay-ved
