Are you sure the engine is seized and isn't simply hydrolocked? If it has sat with water in the cylinders for long enough, it can sometimes have both going on.

A good place to start would be to pull your injectors and take a look inside. If it is dry, try cranking the engine again. If there is water/fuel/anything else sitting in there, you know you had a hydrolock issue.

Good luck.
