    It's hard to say what the extent of the damage may be until the engine has been refilled with coolant, the water pump belt replaced and the engine run o see if there is more damage. Driving a car or even letting it run when the engine overheating is not good and could cause other issues like a blown head gasket. Have the belt replaced add coolant and keep your fingers crossed.
