Please perform a DFU reboot. I would also think about trying the old "device in rice" trick to pull anymore water out of the device. Shut off the the device, and put the device in a container of rice overnight. Of course you could get some dry bags which pull all moisture out.

Once this is complete, please hook the device into your computer and launch iTunes. Ignore all the messages for now.

Turn the Device on holding the home button and power button for 10 seconds. Count this out as it has to be 10 seconds or it will boot back into recovery.

After 10 seconds release the Power button BUT DO NOT RELEASE the home button.

Continue holding the home button until iTunes registers the device.

Note; the device screen will remain black so do not be alarmed.

Restore the device.
