Shauna, who managed several hard boulders on her trip to Switzerland prior to her accident, including the V12 Jack's Broken Heart, commented on her blog:
"I lay on the bouldering mat curled up in a ball but the pain wasn't going away. All I could think of was the noise I heard when I hit the mat. A few deep breaths helped me to compose myself. A short while passed and I decided to try stand on my leg, I really wanted it to be okay, I wanted to carry on climbing, finish off the boulder and walk out. As I tried to put weight on my right leg the pain brought a sickly feeling into my stomach... I knew then that it was bad."
Here is a short video of Shauna climbing most of Jack's Broken Heart. Shauna clarified on her blog:
"Here is a short video I was sent, a random guy filmed my ascent of Jack's but he missed the first move, we have more footage coming soon but for now you can check this out..."
