Dropped my phone in water but flashlight still works

I dropped my phone in the bath for literally one second and took it out. Dried it, sucked the water out of the ports and stuck it in rice. It worked, but i couldn't use the screen. I left it in the rice and waited. 5 mins later I come back and some parts of the screen work but the flashlight is on. I stupidly left it on instead of turning it off and now it has a black screen but a working flashlight that I can't turn off. From now, It has been in rice for 24 hours

Take it out of the rice, it isn't doing anything anyway. Take the phone apart and dry all the water. Place the logic board in some 90% rubbing alcohol and take off all the metal shields with your fingernails. Clean the board with a toothbrush with the rubbing alcohol on it. Put I all back together and give the phone a new battery. See if it works! :)

@sportscus , esmea, Do not power on a wet device and remove battery ASAP to prevent more damage. Below are links that will aid in disassembly of your phone and cleaning and drying of it when apart. If using a tooth brush to clean(very soft bristle, use gently and carefully) to not cause further damage. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
