Could have blown a head gasket big time, or the timing belt/chain has jumped and damaged the valves. Look for oil in the water or water in the oil, that will confirm a blown headgasket, a leak down test would tell you if the timing has jumped, or you could pull of the valve cover and check to see if the valves are closed as each piston comes up on the compression stroke.
