Follow the following Instructions!!
1) Initially SWITCH OFF YOUR PHONE
Since chances are that your phone was powered on when you dropped it in water, it is advisable to switch it off immediately after taking it out.
Switching the phone off will prevent any short circuits from damaging the internals of the phone..
2) Remove Everything
After switching off the phone, start removing everything possible from the phone. Remove the battery, sim cards, memory cards as well as any accessory (stylus, case, cover, skin).
You can easily wipe these off with a dry cloth so that no water remains on these items.
3) SHAKE IT
Gently shake the phone to get rid of any water present in the headphone jack, charging port or under the physical buttons.
After this, wipe the phone with a dry cloth, toilet paper or paper napkins thoroughly to remove any water present on the exterior.
4) Keep it in RICE
This is one of the most commonly used and known techniques. Get an airtight container or a ziplock bag and fill it with uncooked rice. Place your phone inside the rice, shut the ziplock bag/container tight and keep it in a dry place.
You can also try using oatmeal or silica gel packs.
5) WAIT FOR SOME TIME
Leave the phone in the rice for at least 24 to 48 hours. Ideally, do not even try to take the phone out to check if it has started working or not. If there wasn't too much water damage, your phone should start working.
