It is not a "spontaneous discharge" but an accidental discharge due to impact. 1911s have the ability to discharge when dropped unless modified with something like a firing pin safety. Series 80 Colts have this, but the Colt in the incident did not.
Ah, but this one did have a firing pin block, as explained in the article and shown in Fig. 2d.
