Sounds as if you may have blown a head gasket. Remove all the plugs and run a compression test on all cylinders. If you did blow a head gasket and you did not remove all the plugs when you ran a compression check it is possible a cylinder had water or coolant in it. When you cranked it over it tried to hydraulic lock and may have bent a rod.
