I got home today and my  Marineland  LED light was in my sump. I picked it up out of the water and the water was all cloudy around that area and dark water was dripping from the light. What do I need to do?

no longer than 12hours I know that for sure. It was only maybe 1/4 of the light in the water. I was about to feed the fish and I turn off the pump and look at the sump. That when I notices the light and the cloudy water. I changed all the water in the sump right away. So I'm just hoping nothing happens
