2) Most often this is used sarcastically. It means almost the same thing, that something bad (or possibly something illegal) happened, and it looks like it was an accident, no one can prove you did it on purpose, but you benefit from it, you are happy about it.

Translations of "Accident"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Any accidents have never occurred in my office.
Is this unnatural?
A: I’m not exactly sure what the rule is, but I think it’s that we don’t use ‘any’ before the verb in sentences with never.

The site linked below, which is about uses of “any”, gives the example “She never eats any fruit”.
If instead of “she” you want to talk about “anyone”, you can’t say “Anyone never eats any fruit”. Instead, you have to change it to “No one ever eats any fruit”. Your sentence is similar to this example.
