Are there any idioms, slang or informal expressions for a bad situation that causes trouble for a person and seems impossible to get out of.
A guy lost a smartphone with a ton of personal information on it, in a public place. The smartphone had his logins, passwords, credit card info, personal porn and selfies. It is unlikely that he will get it back.
That poor guy is ______

I am looking for idioms to describe the situation when someone is in deep trouble and unable to fix it.
