That sure sounds like some kind of battery and/or internal circuitry failure.  I would recommend that you take the phone to a Verizon store and have them replace the battery and test out the new battery and phone while you are in the store. 

 

If only the battery was affected I would say you were very lucky.  I hope your phone is not damaged but an electrical "event" such as that usually damages the internal circuitry.  Good luck.
