Were you able to restart it? If not I"d start by checking the fuel pump. If it restarted I would have it scanned for trouble codes.

Why are you so convinced its the fuel pump? If you can hear it running I'd think its safe to say its pumping although I suppose there could be an exception. Have you scanned it for trouble codes? Have you checked the fuel pressure?
