If the engine was running once it hit the water which is likely from the scenario you may have a wrecked engine as well unfortunately. Make sure you strip the engine and clean with fuel before trying to start it again. If there is water in there it will not compress and will deffinately blow your engine.

Boat guy here, wet engines are no biggie. Pull the plug and air filter; pour WD-40 in the carb and spin the engine w/ the plug out to work the water out of the block. After the WD-40 do your normal after run oil treatment.

99% of the time the plug gets killed by the water, and that's about the worst that will happen. BTW, your engine will be fine after gulping water, so don't be afraid to take it out drinking again.
