How to Recover Contacts SMS from Water Damaged Android Phone

“Yesterday, my son was almost drown in the swimming pool. As a father, I had to save him and did not realize that my Samsung Galaxy S6 was in my pocket. Is there anyway to service it or at least to save the data (such photo, notes, contact), especially contacts. I don’t care about the music and photos – I had a backup on my computer, but no contacts. They are very important that I need to get them back. How can I recover lost contacts from my water damaged Samsung, running on Android OS system. Thanks for the response.” Jessica.
