    give it a few days! I ran into the sea with my phone in my pocket ones LOL thought it was wasted but tried every day for like a week until it magically turned on again. Hope it will work.

    all the best

    Put it in a bag of rice overnight, itll absorb the moisture.

    Boiler? as in heat?

    Heat creates moisture, you don't want more moisture.
