Ignition left on, engine not running, damage?

The key can be removed with the ignition still on. I thing the shipper left the ignition on while the car was being transported. It may have been left on for four days.
The battery now will not take a charge from a plug-in charger, 6 amp. The starter relay clicks after about 1/8 turn on the engine.
Maybe the coil, or the Electronic Control Unit were damaged? I'd like to know what might not be o.k. now.

+1 on the heavy keychain ruining the cylinder
as for the battery, i'd say replace it. mind as well, if it's a long term vehicle.
