Salt water damage for Hero 7 black

[ New ]

Hello! three days ago,It was my first time to use my Go pro hero 7 black in underwater. and I just go down to the boat and right after the camera was soaked in the water, the screen shows that the memory card was in need to reformat. and then I climb up to the boat again and click OK to reformat. after that the camera never turns on. I fully dried up first the camera with skeleton case and I opened it. I pull out the battery and memory card aswell. And I noticed a little water in battery port. I didn't use it at all until we finished the activity. And when I got home I put it on the bowl of rice so the excess water will be absorbed (as I followed on the youtube "the first aid if water damage occurs") I burried there my camera in 3 days now. Can someone suggest what would I do next regarding to this case?
