Dead?????

I think I killed my loach by accident!!!! I went to my tank this morning and it was lying on its side at the bottom of the tank so I thought it was dead and flushed it. Then I read that a characteristic of loaches is to sleep on its side and appear dead. Would it have woke up immediately when I netted it or did I kill it by flushing it????
