    I don't think there is anything you can do. That sort of heat for any length of time can cause organ failure.

    Once the organs begin to shut down, there is nothing that will save them. I know it's not what you want to hear, but it's reality. If it had been chilled, it could possibly be saved. But heat is a merciless killer.

    You can try mixing a egg and just a wincy bit of salt in cold water, not too cold by a little and try to give it little by little to him for a little electrolyte food boost sorta.
