Hi, Im sorry to hear that!

What you can do is remove the battery and and fill a paper bag with about 2 cups of DRy uncooked instant rice.

Then add the camera to that bag and close it, Shake it gently each day for 3 full days, that should wich out the water.

There maybe also other things you can do, but this is the best trick ib the book for phones and cameras and many electronics that get wet internally ;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
