oh how horrid is that,
hopefull he will be ok :)
i have read on here of peoples Bettas doing the same thing
and they have been ok.
is there any chance of you putting a lid on his tank,
these fish are known for doing this,and it may not
be the last time he does it, i'm sure i read that this is a
behaviour of Bettas,due to jumping from puddle to puddle,
so it is something that they do.

If he was only out of the water for a few seconds like you said then he should be fine. Willow is right to suggest a lid on his tank though as they have been known to do this.

Hope he's alright.

No need to use meds. Leave it at that and just do plenty of water changes. Bettas are very sensitive to medicines.

Yeah, he should be fine. My females get so excited when I feed them that sometimes they end up on the floor. No worries though! I just plop them back in and they're a little dazed but otherwise fine. Betta's have been known to jump out and lay on the floor for a few hours, and since they can breathe straight from the air, if they are returned and left alone for around 24hrs in their tank, they're usually fine. Make sure that you get a hood for your tank though! It helps to keep this from happening!!!
