Can a Blow dryer turn on by itself

Customer Question

Can a Blow dryer turn on by itself?

My kids were upstairs, and in the bathroom with the door shut the blow dryer just began to blow.
The kids were scared, and just unplugged it. It was in the Hi position. My daughter said that when she used it earlier about 4 and 1/2 hours previously, she turned it off. They are spooked.
Is there an explanation for this that is provable? believable? I read on line of it happening to someone else, and they attributed it to Phsycic..stuff. I don't.
Thank you

Yes but it is from a short in the dryer, in the switch. Time to throw out, it can be a fire hazzard.
