When I was a junior analyst, I once deleted the main table that contained all 70k+ users, passwords, etc. The problem was fixed in 15min after the DBA was engaged to copy all data back from the QA environment that was synchronized every X minutes. Or we could have restored a back from a few hours ago.

The whole company fucked this one up pretty badly. NO excuses.
