You need to clean it to avoid further damage

Take the phone apart and soak the motherboard in isopropyl alcohol, and scrub it with a toothbrush GENTLY to loosen dirt, do this for a hour, but disconnect the camera first

Put the phone together and reassess the situation, and tell us what you see so we know what else needs to be done

Also, it's a good idea to buy a new battery because the old one may have shorted out from the water
