turtle flipping over in water

My red eye turle can not turn over when he falls upside-down in the water (approx 1.5 cm deep). This happened twice. He fell off his rock while sleeping and tried for a few seconds with his neck to flip over, but then simply gave up. What can i do about this? How long can he last upside down? Im worried when I am not home to help him!
