Poor man! All is not lost. The might recover. Don't water or feed them for a few of weeks. Pick off any withered leaves
If the base of the plant,(where the leaves start), is not already soft and mushy, they should come back.
A good tip for watering this time of year is to water from below. Sit the pot on a saucer of water. After half an hour, empty out any remaining water as the plant will have 'drank' what it needed.
