iToilet 3GS…

Hi guys. So my mum dropped her 3GS into the toilet last night. She dried it off and we put it straight into some rice. This morning she wakes me up and says, "I took it out of the rice, it wouldn't turn on so I plugged it in and it started buzzing weakly and a red light came on so I unplugged it and put it back in the rice." I should mention, it didn't just fall into plain toilet water- it fell into bleachy toilet water…
Anyway, since it's a 3GS I've bought her a 5 because it's time she upgraded anyway. My query is, she hasn't backed up to iCloud in a very long time, I know this because I've put her on my old 3GS until the 5 arrives and I couldn't set it up from an old iCloud backup- do you think the phone will ever turn back on long enough for me to sync her apps and photos etc? She uses her laptop even more rarely than iCloud so that won't help. Does it just need to sit in the rice for a while longer? It's only been in about 18 hours. Thanks.
