GoPro 5 Water Leaked

Hi, I have several GoPro Hero 5 Black which was bought a few months ago. When I used it last month diving at around 5m (~15ft) depth, the water leaked in as I can see the water inside the screen. I immediately switch it off and bring up to the surface. I have taken out the battery and let it dry in the pot of rice, however it is now confirmed dead. Please help me to resolve this. As I aware that, GoPro 5 has the waterproof rating up to 10m (33ft). Thanks.
