Well I can't think of any good reason something like this should happen. When doing a run-up, wheels are supposed to be chocked, parking brake SET, and someone (trained) sitting in the left seat. Back in my airline days I was trained on starting and running DC-9 APU's and riding brakes during a tow. I had to learn about start pumps, fuel switches, fire circuit tests, electrical buses, cabin heat, hot starts, aux hydraulics, how to tune in ground, how to use the intercom, and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember, which is why we always used a checklist. And got annual recurrent training. IIRC we spent 4 hours in the classroom and 2 hours in the aircraft.

I imagine the training for actually starting and running an engine at high power is quite intensive. Or should be.
