Your bilge pump discharge hoses are supposed to have an anti siphon loop that should go high up in the ER or under the gunwales. If those loops are not there, then water will definitely come in through the through hull discharge points as the water level rises and before the boat begins to float. Of course, there may be other ways for water to flood the boat, depending on how severely it heeled over, even through the bilge pump hose anti siphon loops if heeled sufficiently.

Oh, and while agree 911 should not have been called, all this argument over it is pretty silly.
