This past weekend I did a wedding and my SB-910 fell in a pond, It was completely submersed for at least 10 seconds. I took it out, switched it off and took out the batteries. I put it back in the case for the remainder of the wedding which lasted another 4 hours, once home I put the flash in a container and filled the container with white rice.

I am too scared to open it up by removing any screws and maybe doing more damage to it (like I did with my iPhone)

Has anybody ever dropped their flash in the water ? is there a chance it will ever work again ?
Is it worth sending it to Nikon ?
Should I just go out and buy a new flash and hope that in a month from now it will be completely dried out and might turn on and work the way it used to ?
