He needs a vet NOW. This is a severe emergency and he could certainly die. Start calling around to any vet you've already gone to, or every vet nearby. Some have emergency numbers you can call after they're closed. Some have someone still on duty at night for emergencies. Call around in at least an hour radius around you - he seriously needs to get to a vet right now. It sounds like his leg is probably broken and he has internal injuries.

Any news on your little one? My hedgie took a fall the second day I had him. Not as bad a fall, but it was scary. I hope you were able to find a vet!
