By "loop", I assumed you meant a "for" loop in Lua. This is not a
"for" loop, thus "break" won't work. Also, this appears to be calling
the function separately on every table row produced by the query, so
"return" won't prevent it from processing others as well.

So you would need to either check the documentation for the database
wrapper library that you're using for a solution, or failing that,
figure out a solution in pure SQL, as suggested by Sean Conner between
your reply and this reply:

Some quick Googling indicates that SQL offers "LIMIT" to limit the
results. So maybe add "LIMIT 1" to Sean's solution?
