Fire it up? Prime the oil pump? Panic?
I don't know if this applies to MB diesels but I have heard that sometimes when a vehicle rolls it will continue to run, without oil pressure cause gravity pulls it out of the sump, until it dies an ugly death. I doubt this is what you are seeing. Really, I am not trying to ruin your day.

I bet you are looking forward to that turbo boost being a mile high there.
