I dropped my iPhone in the toilet. And i did the following, What u should do is immediately turn it off, trying to see if still works will cause it to short out. Dunk it in rubbing alcohol and jiggle it until u see no more bubbles come out, this will push all of the water out of the inside. Then take it out and drain all the alcohol and shake it for a few seconds this will get the rest out. The reason for the alcohol is that alcohol evaporates 10 times faster then water and will keep u from having to open the iPod and drying it out. Then put white rice in a bowl and push the iPod into the middle of the rice and close or cover the bowl. Leave it like that for at least 3 days. After that, take it out, charge it for a little while and turn it back on. Hopefully it will work for u, it worked for me and my iPhone works perfectly. In some cases, I don't know why, it might not but it can't hurt to try right, I mean u dropped it in water anyway so go for it.
