    Someone needs to check if its alive and if it is then you need to ring or take it to a vet asap

    First of all someone needs to check if the poor bunny is alive or not.
    If he/she is alive then they need to be taken to the vet right away.

    Although if my bunny did that I would have taken them straight to the vet without hesitation.

    Whenever an animal is sick like that you should get them straight to the vets. :confused:

    We would have, but when it went on it's back and started kicking it's legs it died like less than a min after.

    They would have bin no way to get there before it died :(

    if any animal or human fits you need to protect their heads from hitting the floor, this may well have prevented his death.

    Its worth letting the breeder know this has happened. if he wants to know the cause then the vets can do a postmortem
