Did any water get in there while the engine was running? If so you could have cracked a piston, water does not compress, so if there was any slight weakness in a piston that will be the first place to let go. You could try a cylinder leak down test on the engine and compare the readings and if number 8 shows high loss then tear it down to take a look see.
