I am sorry for the unfortunate accident with your iPhone. You need to get it dried out before applying power to it. A good home remedy is to bury it in a bag of uncooked rice grains, but you will probably have to take it to a repair shop for professional service. If you had your information backed up on the iCloud or synced to iTunes, you may be able to recover or restore it once your device is repaired or replaced.
