    Stick it in a bowl of rice and don't mess with it for a few days

    It happened with my dads iPhone 3GS. Anyways..

    When it is dropped in water. It should not be turned on at all, even to just check on it. Leave it off. Dry it with a towel. Then leave it in rice for about a week. Then turn it on. If it doesn't work, charge it. If it is okay, and then when you try to charge it again and it starts draining the battery more, its your loss.

    Yeah putting it in a bowl of dry rice is the best remedy
