    Turn it off and remove the battery. You may have fried the phone but you never know. Try swabbing the gold circuit parts with rubbing alcohol to remove dirt and minerals , then put in uncooked rice (bury it, phone & battery) in an airtight container for at least 3 days or more is better. Don't turn it back on yet.

    Future reference-whenever you have something like this happen, do NOT turn it on.
