The rubber lining on the interior face of the back cover should keep any liquid from continuing its entry to the phone's internals, but it doesn't prevent the liquid from sipping through from the outside. Check out how large the notch at the power button area that you use to open up the back cover.
But you should dry the phone first as is for a few hours to be sure no more liquid could enter. When you're sure that it's safe, open the back cover then remove the battery and dry the phone face up so that any liquid residue will go down, at the same time dry the back cover separately too. And be sure that everything is dry, including the ports, before you reattach the battery.
And if the unfortunate event that the phone turned off when it was wet, do not attempt to turn it on. Remove the back cover and battery immediately and let them all dry for at least 24hrs, focus an electric fan to them if you can, to be sure that you max out the opportunity to dry them. And during the drying process, do not keep on touching them to avoid liquid moving inside.
I hope this answers your question.
