Although I would think that the camera is dead, I would still suggest you put a small packed dessicant inside the battery compartment (hope it can be revived by this). Or tape another dessicant on the inner side of the body cap and recap it on the body.

You should have never tried to turn it on after being submerged (I believed it was submerged when your group went into the rapids). The 60D has some weather sealing, but that is not an insurance to get it submerged. And the worst mistake was to turn it on immediately while wet. Hoping for the best yet expect the worst.
