few weeks ago got my xperia SP damage because i got caught in heavy rain.
my phone got into exactly situation as your sister's also,
because i cant shutdown the phone i just let it drain the battery till empty and leave it alone for 4-5 days without charge.
now the phone works without hardware proble, but the error sometimes still come (it just works ok for 1 weeks ago, till 3-4 hours it got into same reboot again)

i notice it works ok on recaf 4.4 ROM (not sure, but when i flash 4.2.2 or 4.3 ROM the reboots always come back) .

if its bootloader unlocked i suggest you flash kernel with recovery ( so if after few days you want to try to turn on the phone but it still reboots u can shut it down from recovery). thats my experience tho, good luck for your sister and sorry for my english.

Come clean and go to a repair centre. The internal system is damaged and thats causing the boot problems. To fix this you need to get it fixed ;(
Dont know how much it can cost tho.

Put your phone in a bag of rice or that silica gel leave it there for 3-4 days. Make sure your phone is not waterlogged. wipe all of it with a towel BUT DON'T BLOWDRYER it.
