Charging Problem

After my battery relocation to my trunk, MSD 6AL install, electric fan Install, i had a charging problem.... this is what ive found, where am i now...

I had to push start it this moring, i drove it to the craft shop on post... when i got there i saw NEG cable had come off where it was attached to the control arm. (I drove it with no ground)

Now i have a good ground on the frame. It would not start, with my multimeter on the battery, it was around 11.5 volts or so, when i tried cranking it over, it dropped to about 3 volts, instantly. when i let off the key, it went back up to 11.5 after 20 seconds.

I hooked a charger up to it, and it started up NO PROBLEM.

Do you think my battery is killed now?!?!
