Accident report: confusion of the belayed end and the loose end at top anchor

An accident occurred in Long Dong last week.  A beginner was seconding a 5.7 trad route.  She tied into the middle of the rope, unclipping draws above her and reclipping the dangling tail back into them below as she passed.  At the top anchor, she also unclipped and reclipped the loose end that nobody secured into the top.  No one noticed the mistake.  Afterwards, she asked to be lowered.  Then she fell directly to the ground and had her arm fractured.
