How often do home thermostats fail?

My friend's thermostat failed. He came home and his house was 120 degrees. How does this happen? How common is something like this? Could this have been prevented?

I have never heard of anything like this happening, so now am wondering how this can happen and how it can be prevented. Obviously, mechanical devices fail, but I'm surprised there wasn't a mechanism in place to shut the heater down or something.
