Some electronics can be saved by repeated flushing with distilled water. Pure water does not conduct, but you will need to get rid of the salt and some electronics have board components that dissolve into water so several flushes are needed. Then drying and final cleaning with alcohol & Q-Tips. But you need to get all the salt out as soon as possible.

Unfortunately if you turn the device on while it is wet with conductive liquid you might have blown circuitry and no amount of cleaning is going to help.
