DROVE THROUGH PUDDLE; CAR STOPPED

2005 Mercedes Benz C230

Engine Performance problem
2005 Mercedes Benz C230 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 43000 miles

During a storm, my son drove the car through a puddle. It stopped. He could not get it started. He had it towed to a Mercedes dealership. They are calling this an " accident " and we have to call our car insurance. What could be wrong? The service guy told my son it could be " toast " Rods bent or something like that. The term " hydra lock" was also used?
