Moderator Gone Amuck!

As @Adriano Faria points out, you may consider restoring from backup and also thinking about what privileges you give to moderators that prevent you from being able to audit or undo behavior in the future. Not only for them, but for yourself too! Have a separate login for sensitive administrative things vs. the account you use for moderating to help prevent accidental things or CSRF exploits or similar.

You probably don't want to grant anyone (including yourself) the "Can manage deleted content" permission, and make sure that your permanent deletion setting set not set to immediately, but gives you enough time to see and address things like this. You would then be able to see it in the Mod CP and restore the content.

Lessons learned!

He probably deleted it from there too, so only restoring a backup now.

You can also probably remove the ability to moderators delete content. Leave only hide. 

Good reason to do backups.

Where is "Can manage deleted content"? I do not se that in the group settings.
