Chandler is dying! Freak accident!?

I don't know what happened. Chandler was fine when I left a few hours ago. I came home to him struggling on his side. He looks like he was injured really bad :(
I had done a partial water change and the only thing I can think of is that he somehow got injured in the filter because the water level got higher.
Here he is struggling on his side. I seriously doubt he can be saved. I put him in this QT tank but I dont know what else to do :(
I'm crying. I've already had a bad night and then came home to this!

Try lowering his water down to a couple of inches so he can get air easily. And add some salt...sorry I cant be of more help.
How warm is his water?
How big was the water change?
Was the fresh water you put in way colder than his tank water?
Hope he gets better

Thanks for your help. I've moved him to a smaller tank with low water (used stress coat) but he's laying on the bottom dying. I feel like if I move him or do anything it will make his death more painful. This is so hard. He wasn't sick at all and now he's about to be dead.

My fingers are crossed for you. I thought last monday I was going to lose Tom for sure, but he's hanging in there day by day.
