First-day-on-the-job dev: I accidentally nuked production database, was instantly fired

"2. The dev should have had enough knowledge to have identified possible issues and raised it higher"

The documentation gave an example with, AFAICS, no indication that this was the production database. Absent a clear indication that it actually was the live database the only possible knowledge for him to identify a possible issue would be independent knowledge of the credentials for that database.
