Jumped tank

What's the probability of survival for a 2" cichlid after it has jumped a tank? Early this morning (while getting ready for work), my firemouth jumped out of the 55g and was flopping around on the carpet. I picked him up almost immediately after it happened but was a bit rough since he just didn't seem to want to go back to the tank. I'm kind of scared that I will go back home and find the fish on the floor again or dead. Ugh!

I had a jumper a few weeks ago. I now covered ever inch of the tank's top. I don't loose sleep any more.
