Check the USB port for any small piece of rice.

Don't drop your phone in water.  Water is very bad for electronics.

Also, you generally shouldn’t plug your phone in right away after that happens.  It is better to left it completely dry out first.  A air drier helps speed the process up.  If your oven can be set below 150 deg or so, you can also try that but be careful.
