how old is the turtle? what\'s the water level? turtles are good swimmers and don\'t drown unless they are hatchlings and the water is very deep for them (since they learn swimming gradually) or if there is something that made them stuck in there

Sometimes turtles will sleep underwater, mine do that all the time, if the water is too cold for him he might have started going into hibernation, I would check the water temp. it should be about 75*f to 78*f.
