Water can also get into the exhaust if you crank and crank and crank and the engine doesn't start. Exhaust pressure expels the cooling water, and if there is no exhaust pressure, and the engine is being spun for a long time by the starter (with the cooling water pump pumping as a result of that), water can flood into the engine.
