On the way to school today while braking to take a turn I heard and felt a lot of banging coming from the drivers side front wheel on my duramax I limped it to school and found that the CV shaft had came unbolted from the front differential.

All but one bolt were completely gone, with the threads all being in great shape on the diff hub. I'm assuming these bolts have been loose for a while and finally fell out. I didn't have any signs of this prior to this happening.

While the CV shaft was unbolted from the diff, it whipped around a bunch and snapped the hub off the shaft, as shown in the pic below. No other visible damage was caused minus some scuffing on the frame. I put in a new shaft in school along with new bolts and a lot of red loctite, and all has been well so far.

Sounds like you came out pretty good on that deal. Could have been a lot worse. Likely someone never tightened them down and didnt use the locktight.

Like Karl said that could have been a lot worse. Good job fixing it right.
