Hold power button and the home button for ~10 seconds to hard-reset. Specifically, what led up to her iPod dying?

fluid damages are pretty bad - and they are getting worse.

when the fluid is gone - it leaves a conductive residue - this residue will act like cancer, it simply "eats" his way through the small parts and circuits.

you can try to fix it with cleaning.

get some isopropyl alcohol and a paintbrusch, disassemble the ipod and clean the odd looking parts (white greenish residue) - clean it carefully - but it must be removed, check the connectors and don't forget the bottom side of the logic board.

let it dry - don't use a hair dryer for that and when it's dry, reassemble it and try to power it on/connect it with the computer

good luck

If it has been water damaged and the Apple logo is just blinking, those are signs of possible hard drive or logic board damage.

There is no hard drive in the iPod Touch, but a bad logic board is likely.
