Generic tank reg picture.
Was the chrome part unscrewing from the tank or the black part?
If chrome part, the screws to hold the bonnet in place are loose or missing.
If black part, the reg was unscrewing from the bottle.
Based on your description about how it was venting gas, I'm thinking it was the bonnet was unscrewing. If the reg was unscrewing off of a pressured 4500 and it was venting from the threads, the pressure probably would've sent it airborne.
