Having witnessed a few thousand lifts over a lifetime, I'm having a hard time visualizing this. First, how does only one wheel allow for this? If the other side of the lift didn't turn, they would have been fighting each other. Also, I usually see lifts move so slowly that a Stop button should have done the trick before it got off the track.
I'm not condemning the marina, I've never heard of them. But, the story just sounds off, if the operator wasn't able to notice a wheel turn 90 degs in time to stop everything.
