What to do after dropping smartphone in water?

My wife dropped her LG phone in a bathtub full of water. I realize that it might be done for, but are there any steps we can take to try to save it?
I've heard a lot of tips including rice and soft napkins. I think, you should try it.
Turn the phone off, take the battery out (if you can) and put both the phone and the battery into a bucket/container with raw white rice. Let sit for 24-48 hours. Rice soaks up moisture, and it would be your best bet to bring the phone to life. Hope this helps.
