My duck got stuck in the kiddie pool last night. When I got him out this morning he couldn't walk. What should I do?

He is doing a little better. He seems to be isolated from the flock which worries me.

I've had an issue with a duck who didn't want to walk. I separated her in a dog kennel so she could get to food and water. I believe she had malnutrition, so I changed the feed to chicken layer pellets. It took her a few weeks to be strong enough to stand and get around.
The main thing I learned was patience. She needed to take her time to heal.
@chickens really is probably right though, given the circumstances. He swam all night and has worked for those hours.
