Water in the Frontscreen (New Go Pro Hero 5 Black)

Hello everyone,
I need help with my New Hero 5 Black Edition.
I went swimming in a waterfall with my Go pro and I checked before, if all doors were closed.
Now there is water in the screen on the frontside but I can use the cam like before, the cam is still working. I cant complain the cam in the next months, because I'm on a backpacking trip..

Do you know any possibility to get the water out of the screen?

Thank you very much for your help!
Regards, Yannick
