Opening trunk with dead battery

OK lets picture this scenario. Flood damaged F10 535i with no key fob or key sitting at a junkyard. The doors are open, so access to the inside is no problem. Battery is totally flat or dead. Trunk will not open using the switch by the hood release. Thinking of connecting a battery to the jump start terminals in the engine compartment in order to power the switch to pop the trunk, but worried about damage to some wet modules or electrics. Any ideas on how to get the trunk open? I dont see any place to put a key.
