Sheared Driveshaft on X10

Anyone ever seen anything like this? We were tubing the kids for about 30 minutes when on we idled back to pick up a tuber, and felt the boat vibrating a bit. We took off again, and felt major vibration, so I stopped immediately. But the boat into reverse, thinking we might have picked up some seaweed. Went forward again idling, and then a load clunk. No forward motion. Got towed back to the dock, put the X10 on the trailer, and couldn't believe me eyes. Prop had slide back into rudder. We don't recall hitting anything. The shaft looks straight. No dents or dings in the prop or the rudder. Any ideas?
