I think you got off lucky Helio. It would appear that something on the cold side went through the blades. It takes just a tiny piece of rock or metal to lodge between the turbine wheel and housing for a split second to pop the shaft. The blades can explode at that point if spinning fast enough when hitting the housing. I would inspect everything from the air meter assembly to the down pipe before putting on a new turbo.
