3.2GT Half shaft detached

Hi all, has anyone ever heard of a half shaft coming loose at the gearbox end? My son has a 3.2GT and after 2 engine overhauls and steering rack replacement by the same dealership the left side half shaft somehow came out of the gearbox when he took a sharp bend (full lock) in a parking garage. He was in a different city at the time and therefore went to a different dealership. He was told that the split ring holding the shaft into the gearbox was missing. Can this split pin come off by itself or has it not been put back? How long can you drive without a split pin holding the half shaft in?

couldn't have come off while the shaft was inside the gearbox, but might have fallen off when the shaft detached.

You could drive without it until you turn the steering wheel far enough and apply sufficient power..
