Exclamation [Q] Water entered Xperia V

I used my Xperia V for about a minute underwater to shoot a video of fish with the flashlight on. After taking it out of the water, the screen went dark but the flashlight was still on. I held on the power button to unlock it and the phone vibrated twice. I repeated it again and the light turned on again. After a while I held on the power button and finally the flashlight turned off but I can't turn on the phone after that. I took it back home and rinsed the phone (because it was submerged in a river) while holding the ports tightly closed, dried it with a towel and finally opened it up. There was some water swirling inside the back cover but I don't think it's water damaged. The battery and circuit indicator has turned pink.

It doesn't charge or turn on anymore. Should I just leave it to dry?

It's water resistant as in "it can take some rain or some splashes". It isn't designed to be fully submerged under water. Let it dry for some time and hope for the best
