The fact that you are wearing a swim suit means you intended to go in the water. You put yourself in the position for this to happen to your phone. You may ask your friend to pay for half of the phone but don't be upset at him if he denies your request.
That's the end of it right there. I wouldn’t even ask him to pay for half of it. You were at a party, you were drinking, there was some horseplay and you took a dip – but the bottom line is you put yourself in that situation and the responsibility for it is yours. You should have either not been drinking, not been around people who were drinking or secured your phone somewhere else. If you choose to do those things that’s OK, but the consequences of your choice are yours to bear and nobody else’s. It sucks that your phone got screwed up, but S happens, as they say.
I think that if you even approach your friend to pay for this phone he’s going to resent it. If he’s your friend and you don’t want to screw that up, suck it up and pay for a new phone yourself.
Sorry if that’s harsh, it’s just my take on the situation.
