iPhone 4 that won't load up

My sister recently dropped her iPhone 4 and smashed it across the screen. Since then, the phone will not turn on or load up when plugged into a wall charger however it will load up the Apple logo for roughly 3 seconds before showing a black screen again when it is attached to the computer. It has not gotten past doing this for the last 3 days. It's still connected to my computer now but it's not showing up at all as being connected.

Any idea what I can do about it?

Yes, take the phone to an Apple store and have them look at it.
