Do a water exchange to reduce any toxins the light could have introduced. I don't know how the coral will respond. You will know in 24 hours. Good grief...sorry.

I would do a 30-40% pwc as Greycoyote suggested, but besides that, you've done all you can. Just have to wait and see. Also, make sure you thoroughly clean out the light fixture to try and prevent any corrosion. You may be able to save the fixture.
