Pretty much as I see it- very rare for that to happen
- designed for the blades not to do that - but lke F1 cars sometimes the wheel manages to bugger off.

Seen some very impressive ones involving C130s and propeller blades - enter fuselage at bottom 1 side and exit fuselage near top on other side
