Prolly nothing you can do. Maybe look for parts and throw parts at it.

Running with MIUI

The rice trick will maybe absorb water that's left in the phone, but if electricity already arced across the water and fried components, nothing will fix them except for replacing them. It's unfortunate, but it's the nature of electronics; they're very sensitive.

Just get a separate battery charger and couple of new batteries, problems solved.

Check out my notes in this thread (the last paragraph in post #5) from last June. Perhaps it can help, but you better do it asap since your "problem" began about 48 hours ago. Good luck!
