Hi and Welcome to the Community!
REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!
Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time (perhaps longer...perhaps 5 days). Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
As for your data, if your BB winds up being destroyed by this, then recovery of your data is a matter of having taken backups before this happened. If you did so, then your data is safe. If you did not do so, then you migrate from the latter to the former in this old saying:
Backups, like insurance, are neither a reactive nor an optional activity.
