You can start by putting it in a zip lock bag with rice to help absorb the moisture.  Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't.  Or you may be able to recover partially...meaning that some core features may not work...such as headphones, sound (incoming/text).  There are just a lot of variables and you won't know the end result until it completely dries.  Best of luck to you...

Resist the urge, turn it off, keep it off, in the bag of rice for 3 days at least before trying it again.
