Angry PUKED ANTI-FREEze after water pump change

Long story short... I am traveling in MICHIgan. The other day, I parked, anti-freeze leaking.. steady drip. Finally overheated.

I had some guy I found here, and he changed my water pump and thermostat. I drove to Cleveland, then back to Michigan the next morning. 350 miles total. Everything fine.

Drove this afternoon about 20 miles, everything fine. Then I came out 4 hours later, and all my anti-freeze is on the ground!!!

It is dripping from a bottom hole in the radiator. Not from the engine block and not sprayed all over the inside of the engine. I'm not familiar with radiators. The overflow resevoir is full! completely full. Its dark and I'm standed, cannot see if there is any in radiator but i doubt it. Its all over the pavement.

ANyone know what to look at? Its coming straight from the hole in the bottom of the radiator. Its not a "hole" as a hole in the radiator, its a hole that is supposed to be there. Please help, I do not know any mechanics here and I have to get back to cleveland. What should I do? Could it be a hose? If it was another bad waterpump they put on how do I know?

Cool

Man sorry for your bad luck, by any chance it's not a drain plug opened up that was maybe loose or not tighten up proper.
