How to destroy a Nikon D850 camera

You Tube just shared this video with me.  Fstoppers was making a video to talk about some filters and a wave came up behind the guy and gave him and his camera a bath in salt water. 

Salt water is brutal!

That hurt to watch!

I can't image though that the camera is 100% destroyed.  Likely just the battery.

I am sorry for the camera but, if it
dies that will all be the guy's fault!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Well they had a good attitude about it.  I wonder if the camera was insured?

That sucks.  I'm curious if they were able to get it working after it sat for a little while with the battery out? With just that one wave, and seeing that it wasn't submerged, it shouldn't have any water inside.  I would guess just the battery got the water?
