Default Dropped phone in water, sat in rice, won't turn on

I dropped my Samsung Galaxy S in the toilet a few days ago. I immediately took it apart, dried it off and it sat in a closed bag of rice for 2 days. It seemed to be working fine all of the third day, then it fell out of my pocket onto the floor and now it won't even turn on. When I plug it in, the charging battery symbol pops up but it won't go any further than that. Any ideas? :/
