My Fire Shrimp molted last night I guess now he's laying on his back/side next to his old shell, Is he ok should I right him or leave him be?

I know they molt but thought they hid not laid down.

Is he still molting? dead?

Thanks,

yeah no movement with the net or since this morning, picked him up in the net and his body was totaly limp waited with him in the net 20-30 min of close watching and no movement or response to stimuli I think he's a gonner.
