HELP! MY COMPUTER GOT WET AND IT WONT TURN ON

HELP!

My computer was in my backpack and my bottle leaked

After I got home I dried it with paper towels. It wasn't completely soaked it was just moist on one side

I tried turning it on, it didn't work. So I tried plugging it in. The charging lights turned on but the computer still won't turn on.

Help please, right now the computer is unplugged and battery is removed.

Not soaked but wet enough to fry the mainboard.
I was able to save the HDD by removing it and putting it into an External Enclosure
