It wasn't nocked all the way IMO I've seen a few arrow nocks get broken by not nocking all the way

the knock could have been to small for the arrow shaft or the string was a bit thick for the knock...could have already had been stressed before hand somehow also

The other knock didn't break but it was a Excalibur crossbow.

This. Excalibur crossbows typically require flat nocks. Was that a flat nock before it broke, or the correct nock for the bow?

For some reason that doesn't look like a flat nock. Be very careful in shooting incorrect nock, as it will void all warranties.

Is that a lighted nock? Take a pic of the other nocks. Those should be flat.

Looks like a lighted nock, Excalibur should use flat nocks. Nock might have been damaged, not seated on the string good, if not a flat nock it could have been turned wrong... Hard to know from the picture

You would be surprised in what they can see. When I worked at the archery shop, people would come in with an excuse on how they damaged their bow, and usually within 15- minutes, and after talking to them, they would come clean on what they did to the bow to damage it.
