How do you prevent this from happening. My wife just stalled in the middle of the road. What can I do to get the car going again?

pull the plugs, and then turn the motor over. do not run it until you purge the water out of the cylinders.

water does not compress, and that is what ruins the motor. just pull the plugs and you should see any water come out. put the plugs back in, get it home and change the oil.

how did this happen? deep puddle with a cold air intake?

Well depending on how fast the engine was running you could have a blown head gasket, bent rod, warped head, and other fun stuff.
