So I hardly believe that water could damage it. :o Most of my old phones (samsung, nokia) worked fine after a few hours since water went into them. So that's the same thing for Blackberry I believe.
As dc/dc stated, a little water can do a lot of damage to a device, as you are experiencing. Now, if you remove the battery from the device immediately, put the device in some uncooked rice for about 48 hours to extract all of the moisture from the phone, you may find success.

The fact that it worked afterwards is common. It may take a while before some of the components become corroded. If you don't believe this to be the case, just do a search around these forums or anywhere on the internet to see how a little moisture in a device can reek all sorts of havoc.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
