Sounds like a similar situation to what happened to a Ryan International A320 several years back while operating for AirTran. One of their mechanics (Ryan Int'l, not AirTran) apparently didn't make sure the latch on one of the engine cowlings latched properly and during climb out, the panel was torn from the engine.
I wouldn't be surprised it this Wizzair incident mirrors the Ryan International incident, as I've heard this sort of thing has happened on multiple occasions, but not always resulting in parts falling off.

The airport is surrounded by not rural populated areas depending on which direction they took off on. If they webst east, there is nothing but open fields, west however, there are some business, car dealerships, and industrial areas.
