    You need to power it off immediately and remove the battery.

    Then it needs to be completely dry before you turn it on again. If you haven't got a dessicant, the suggested method is to put it in a jar of uncooked rice, which will draw the water out. Leave it there for a day or two - a couple of hours is absolutely not enough.

    After that, it's a matter of whether any damage has already been done. We can only hope.

    Good luck!
