Right I am no machanic but I text the guy who told me to never bump start the car & his reply was, when the car is rolling & you drop the clutch the sudden strain on the belt can snap it.

I was a advised by a mechanic many years ago that if you need to bump start, always use a gear no lower than 3rd and to just ease the clutch up very gently.  All you need to do is turn the engine over slowly for just a few cycles and if it's going to start it will.. I think if you got towed along at 30mph then bumped it in 1st then yes you might be tempting fate in some way.
