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

I guess it's possible but I couldn't push it back anymore.

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

Mainstream news might be fun to watch

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.
