Run submerged waterfall pump without water, what will happen

In the manual of the submerged waterfall pump...
It says, don't run motor without water.
If the motor run without water, what will happen to the pump?

It will probably overheat and look like a small nuclear explosion. Why do you ask?

water lubricates/cools the impellar, if ran too long it will probably cease up... and then start the small nuclear explosion....

or maybe they put that in the manual to tempt the mischievous people....

if it works, it works... not much you can do at this point, besides buy a new one.
