This sounds like a Head Gasket has Blown it sounds like the engine was running hot prior to this event. The exhaust manifold will not leak water or coolant Period. First you must check your engine oil and see if it it milky white if it is this is bad it means coolant has entered your oil threw a crack or blown head gasket.Freeze plugs do at time rupture but i do not think this is your problem.If no milky oil is present do the following. If the engine cranks refill the coolant to full crank the engine first time with the radiator cap on. What we are doing is looking for a simple leak now. Use a flashlight while it is running to spot the area of the leak. When spotted note if it is in a seam between the head and the motor block. if so Head gasket may be your culprit. If no it may be a simple hose disconnected or blown out. If you need more help please get back to me. Please rate my comment

Tips for a great answer:
Unscrew the bolt that holds the negative connection to the Impala's
battery. Set this bolt aside for later use.
Remove the engine cover to access the intake manifold and manifold
gasket. Disconnect the throttle body inlet duct from the engine.
Twist off the radiator cap to allow draining of the coolant to flow more
smoothly. Place an empty container beneath the radiator's drain plug, and
remove this plug. Allow all of the engine coolant to drain into the empty
container. Replace the drain plug once you are finished.
Tag all of the electrical wiring and hoses before removing so that
reconnection is precise to factory settings. Remove these parts, individually,
from the intake manifold.
Loosen the bolts that hold the intake manifold to the Impala's engine
block. Lift the intake manifold from the block once all bolts have been
Use the flat-head screwdriver to pry the old intake manifold gasket from
the engine block. Discard this part once you have removed it.
Clean the engine block thoroughly with the engine degreaser and linen
cloth. If necessary, use a gasket scraper to remove excess buildup and grime.
Place the old intake manifold on top of the newly-installed manifold
gasket until it aligns with all of the holes of the cylinder flanges and
Attach all of the bolts with your hand to the manifold. Once all bolts
have been positioned, use a torque wrench and apply 15 foot-pounds of pressure
to the bolts to secure the manifold into place.
Reconnect all of the necessary hoses and electrical wiring to the
intake. Pour the engine coolant back into the radiator.
Reattach the engine cover on top of the intake manifold and engine
block. Start the Impala's engine and check for any leaks around the new intake
