It only ended badly on one occasion, and it was an expensive exercise for the insurance company (V6 quad cam engine from a 4wd).
Another tip: if the engine stalls while you're in water, think hard about whether you want to try and start it again. If you know there's no water in the engine go ahead, otherwise play it safe and check it first (check airbox, then pull the plugs and turn it over).
