serpentine belt pulled out

Serpentine belt was pulled out while i was driving my mercedes c200, CDI, year 2001.
I drove the car for another 50 km while having the serpentine belt out.
I was wondering what are the consequences of driving the car with serpentine belt pulled out? Could this cause any damage in the car?

First you should check the car.

serpentine belt drive the alternator, water pump, hydraulic pump, A/C compressor and...

when it puled out and you drove this parts didn't work.

in 50 KM,
Alternator: no problem because you have battery.
A/C: no problem bcs you didn't use it.
hydraulic pump: steering wheel being tight bcs the pump doesn't work.
water pump: most important part for engine. you should checked the ammeter to be careful the engine don't being overheated. if you driving in highway it's better and it has low chance to being overheated but in other conditions the engine will be over heated. so you should think to remember that how much was your coolant temp on that 50 Km.
if you are doubt about engine overheat, check the head gasket.
