It sounds like you broke a brake hose or something has caused the wheel cylender to leak.
You will need to remove the wheel and then the brake drum to determine if it's the wheel cylender. You can identify the wheel cylender easily. It will be a cylendrical item that the top of the brake shoes touch. From behind the backing plate, you will see a steel brake line going to it.
Once you determine where the leak is, let me know and I'll explain what to do next. If you are at all mechanically inclined, you should be able to replace it. Also, if it's only the wheel cylender, the part should be under 20 dollars.
