That is definitive evidence that something is really wrong with the engine. Before you think about what work needs to be done to repair, you need to determine why it happened. Of it is sludge, you need to fix that or else the same failures will continue.
I would remove the engine and do a complete tear down. It's likely that the head is trashed from the piston slamming into it. Also likely the cylinder walls have deep scores. The list of damage is probably more extensive.

I think this Is a cracked piston I found in my oil pan. Do I need to replace all the pistons or just the cracked one?
