Strongly disagree with this. It's training, it's okay to fail and it's where the failing is supposed to occur. We should be challenging people more and giving them more opportunities to fail, not scuttling someone because they thundered in.
They should have been counselled, mentored in whatever way they will respond best (shamed, encouraged, whatever it is that is going to make them step up to the challenge), and then put through the ringer again until they overcame their deficiency or proved they are incapable. The error here was not in giving them a second chance, it was in lobbing them a softball.
