Well done to all involved.
They were extremely lucky the airframe was not hit and severely damaged when it came off as is often the case in these type of incidents.

For eg,
There was this accident back in 1995, sadly a crash and people killed.
A blade separated from the hub first, then the whole prop came off and lodged in the now drooping engine nacelle and wing LE.
Was on Air Crash Investigations show.

There have been a few of these type of events in transport category turboprops but thankfully they are rare.
