It depends which endzone. If it's their own endzone, the defense can recover it for a touchdown. If it's the defense's endzone, the offense can recover it for a touchdown.

Who was the football player that fumble the football at the 1 yard line?

There are plenty of players who have fumbled on the one yard line. Quaterbacks do it on quarterback sneaks. Countless running backs and wide recievers have had it knocked out. More often then not itll go out of the back of the endzone if it is fumbled on the goal line. I even seem to remember a defensive lineman who was showboating and was stripped of the ball. You need to give more information...

Why is a fumble that gos backward out of the inzone for the offense a safety and not a touchbach?

If you put the ball into your own endzone by backward pass or by carrying it there if the ball becomes dead in the endzone it is either a safety if you have possession at the end of the play or a touchdown if the oponent has possession at the end of the play. A ball that goes out of bounds is in possession of the last team to have possession in bounds so a ball going out of bounds in that case is a safety. Likewise a ball fumbled that goes out of bounds behind the goal line is a touchback because the team put the ball in the oponents endzone. If you put the ball in the oponents endzone it is either a touchback if he has possession or a touchdown if you have possession in the end zone at the end of the play. A kick remains a kick until it is possessed or is dead. That is why a ball touched by the receivers that then goes in the endzone where it is downed by the receivers is a touchback. It was the kick that put the ball in the opponents endzone.
