Did it survive the ordeal? Or did you loose him? I had a fish jump out without me seeing it happen. He was out for a good 20 min. and I thought he was dead. But I felt the tiniest movement when I picked him up. So I put him back in the tank and swam for him along the air bar and he started to move on his own. He couldn't swim for himself for almost an hour, so I did it for him. But he survived the ordeal without any problems.

I hope the poor guy is alright.

This happen to my first betta, however he jump from his tank into a glass of water that had on my desk. I later read that they only did that when they are sick of their current environment or the water was to dirty. So I ended up getting him a bigger tank.
