Strange thing happened on a 350 chevy.

Well, I have a friend that has been building a 350 SBC at the local highschool. well i stoped by to help him get it running smoothly and with the break in. Well It ran for about 30 seconds then sounded like it had a TERRIBLE miss so I shut it down. I went to recheck his work on the valves and i noticed the push rod on cyl #6 was sitting about an inch or two away from the rocker....We pulled the intake only to find the lifter just laying in the pushrod valley...

i put it back in and we ran the motor and its all good now. But what could have caused this?????
