Any help on what error this is would be helpful. Red light blinking on water damage is too common symptom to be a coincidence.
Maybe charging with a Qi charging will work?
Removing the back ad battery and placing the device in a bowl of uncoocked rice for a few days would probably have helped to extract moisture from the phone. Turning on the device with water damage is a bad decision imo
