The only thing that I would ask is "were you operating on the big cog" when everything let go. If so the possible failure mode might not be the hanger itself, but the chain going "over the top" as if the inner stop screw on the derailler were a bit too far in, or the stay were flexing a bit more then expected. When the chain drops over the large cog, all sorts of bad things can happen as it jams in place in the spokes (worth noting and accepting for all of us who do not run spoke protectors).

If not, then I'm just going to chalk this failure up to "Glad the Destroyer" Hermes......
