Accidentally dropped a baby turtle (size of a quarter) from 6 feet high on concrete. Is he injured?

Caught a baby turtle in a pond. As I was running back to my family to show them, I dropped him! He slipped out of my hand and landed on the concrete. I'm just curious if this hurt him in any way, or did his shell protect him?

    If he was still alive and the shell was not cracked, he will survive.

    It sure didn't help but turtles are pretty tough. A definite maybe.

    Check if the shell is cracked. If not, then it should be okay., unless it is behaving funny, like not moving or moving erratically.

    Sadly, it probably did some internal injuries. I hope you put him back in his pond.
