    How long has it been plugged in? Might take a bit with severe drain but also the 5 is fairly old by now so battery may be EOL.

    Welcome to iMore! Try using a different lightning cable and wall adapter and see if that works. You may also want to try performing a soft reset just to make sure it isn't frozen. To perform a soft reset, hold both the power button and home button down until you see the Apple boot logo. If your iPhone 5 still isn't turning on then, as robertk328 mentioned, your battery is probably shot.
