That is uplifting news. I had one of those waterproof pockets at a ""fluid"" celebration, the ones where you get pounded and sit in an internal tube. At any rate, suffice it to say the waterproof pocket was not all that waterproof and toward the day's end I needed to discharge the puddle out of the base of it. My telephone (HTC Desire) was off (not certain on the off chance that it was off when I place it in the pocket) however I exited it to dry for a few days and it too returned to life completely. So a shower is not the apocalypse. Persistence, some rice and a squeeze of good fortunes is all you require.

While your touch panel is damage, but the screen can still display, you can use an OTG cable to connect a Mouse to your phone. Once detected, you will get a notification on your Android device. After the mouse is connected, you can see a pointer on the screen and you can use to scroll or click on App or button just like in the computer, so try to log in a google drive or dropbox and backup your phone data.
If you don't want to buy an OTG cable, you may try to use some tool to recover data from your phone after water damage.

Try the rice trick, I was able to bring my phone back to life when this kinda same situation happened to me.
