    "What to do if your iPad gets wet:

    • Immediately turn off your iPad. Do not turn it back on, charge it, or connect it to a computer or other device.
    • Second, hand-dry your iPad as best you can with a soft microfiber towel. Remove your SIM card and pat down any excess moisture and wipe out the headphone and charge ports.
    • Next, quickly place the iPad in a bag of uncooked rice and let it sit for 48 hours in a dry place. You can also add silica packages to the rice to help the absorption process. The rice will absorb any moisture that remains in the iPad.
    • After 48 hours have passed remove your iPad, and try turning it back on. Finally connect up your iPad to your computer and try to do a complete Restore with iTunes. This will provide you with the best chance of getting the iPad to its original working state."

    These devices are incredibly sensitive. I've only seen a handful of cases where the internals got wet and the device survived. Chances are the battery is fried.
    You can always test your luck and have the battery replaced but it may be a waste of money.
    Do you live near an Apple Store? They should be able to run a diagnostic.
