techs, is it possible?

2015 Scion TC
I was driving the other day and accidentally shifted from 4th to 3rd gear instead of 5th gear going about 50mph. My daughter often drives this car and had me thinking, could she accidentally mis-shift from 4th to 1st gear? Is there any kind of safety features that would prevent her from putting it into first? If she did shift into first going 50mph would the Rev limiter keep the engine from blowing up, or would the low first gear drive the motor to over rev?*

Yeah most cars have a lockout above a certain speed, like 15-20kph. You could very well still force it in and if you rev match it opens up, but I think you would notice. Pretty easy from 2nd, not so much from 4th.
