Do what you can to save it. There are many ways to stop rot. It would be accurate to say that it was over watered... This is common, luckily there are many methods to removing infections such as this. Peroxide, rosemary oil, garlic oil, thyme oil, copper solutions, and wettable sulfur are all wonderful methods for controlling fungal issues.
