Help - 2001 GC Limited 4.7 head problem

I don't know if I'm in the correct forum but here goes... Hello from Florida! I have a 2001 GC Limited with the 4.7 that has been loosing coolant fluid somewhere and out of the blue yesterday it got hot then just died. Looking under the hood, I find a hole in the valve cover around #4 cylinder with a rocker sticking out of the hole. Can anyone till me if I need an engine of just a rebuilt head?

Sounds bad remove valve cover and asses damage go from there.the least is heads. Sound like it dropped and piston shot it out the top.
