My bearded dragons neck got crushed

Hello,
A few days ago I was moving my couch around and my bearded dragon was under it so when I lifted, moved and dropped the couch I immediately found him and his neck was under a metal support. There was also a trail of stool from where he was eluding to the fact his stomach was squished as well. It seems like there are a few bruises along his back and he can still move but he is sleeping all the time and only wakes up when I touch him. When I did pick him up his body was very squishy. He is also refusing to eat and even if there is something in his mouth he still doesn’t chew and doesn’t swallow. Please if you know what I should do please help I am really uneducated on what to do in these situations for I have only had him for two years and nothing like this has ever happened.

Edit: Right after I finished writing this my bearded dragon threw up a lot of mealworms and I’m now really getting worried.

Wow, so sorry about this. He needs to be seen by a vet ASAP. There could be fractures, internal injuries etc.I wish the best for your poor dragon, this is an emergency.
