water damage – Huawei Y6 Elite – Wet, Can Charge But Not Booting

(If this is the wrong place to ask this question please tell me.)

I am in a bit of pickle right now.

It was quite rainy where I live, so when I took my phone (Huawei Y6 Elite Android 5.1) outside it fell in some water. It worked initially – I dried it and all.

Then, at the end of the day I powered it off.

I was trying to watch some YouTube, but then I couldn’t power it on. I am 15 years old, and my dad gave me the phone (which used to be his) so I just said I’m going to charge it to him so he wouldn’t be suspicious.

OK, so GOOD NEWS incoming.

Whenever I charge it, it shows up with the ‘charging’ screen.

I tried charging it for 1 hour and it wouldn’t boot although it would show the charging screen.

Tried to put it in a bowl of rice for 1.6 days – took it out and still nothing.

I’m panicking right now as my dad would absolutely kill me if he finds out what I did to my phone, I need help ASAP.

Some of my ideas is to try to charge it for some more time and pray to G-d that it boots.

Another idea would be to tinker inside the components and dry them.

I need other ideas immediately. I am quite worried.
