Asus Phone unresponsive after water drop

So i was out and i dropped my phone on the ground in a big puddle and the top of the phone got wet. When i picked it up the phone screen was restarting but the picture was faint before fading to black. the phone now when connected to power just flashes the back camera flash followed by a short vibration. its been two days now and the phone continues to do this is there anything i can do? any help would be great the phone feels like it works but theres no display but i feel like theres more wrong to it than that.

Exact same occurrence after my wife dropped the phone on a beach in Mexico. I bagged in rice and then no more response. I bagged the phone in ISOPROPYL RUBBING ALCOHOL 91% for 12 hours to clean up the salt and bagged it in rice again for 48 hours. It now turns on, turns off, I was able to charge it, I was able to connect to wifi (I know this because I have my photos auto save on google photos and I noticed on my computer that all the photos from the day the phone fell in the ocean are now online. I was also able to take pictures, video, use the flash. Here's the punchline. The screen does not work. As far as I can tell the only thing not working is the screen. At this point I'm going to try to replace that.
