You do understand that it is the cut off that was thrown, not the piece that was clamped to the fence. The cut off wasn’t clamped to anything.

At that angle and with a rounded bottom, the pieces are going to fall away from the blade, not into it. Try it. And the saw must have a lot of vibration to move a piece that size into the blade hard enough to throw it back.

Here’s a crude drawing of how the offcut will land. I don’t think it would be thrown back unless it was rotating or twisting into the blade.
