How long has it been since it happened? Was it exposed to any weight? If not, I would think if you took it into a warm room and let it set for a while it would go back to shape. Hopefully anyway.

I'd let it sit out in the warm sun for a day or two and see if it returns to the original form.

Try laying it in front of the fireplace, or using a hair dryer to warm it up. It may just take time to resume its shape.
