Turn it off and put it into a ziploc with dry, white rice for at least 72 hours. That will soak out most of the moisture and give it the best shot at survival.

If the rice doesn't work then there really isn't going to be much else to do. Replacing all of the damaged parts is likely to prove cost ineffective.

They're not going to replace it at AT&T or Apple with water damage. They can offer you the replacement price which is either $199 or $299 depending on the size (8GB vs 16GB) but that's about it.
