Well first thing is you should have not tried to turn it on for at least a day or so. More than likely the damage is already done the second you tried to turn it on while it was still wet. Water conducts electricity. As soon as you try to power it, you send power across all the wet parts, and zaaap. Done.

Small chance it may come to life in a day or two if tried, but don't keep trying to turn it on.
