Can I put an ocean snail in freshwater?

I found a shell on the pacific shore and took it home but then I realized there was still a snail in it. I think it's still alive. I'm going back to the beach today to put it back in the ocean but until I do does anyone know what is more harmful: keeping it out of water or putting it in freshwater? Not sure if freshwater harms saltwater marine life. I'm just trying not to kill it. Thanks in advance!

    Generally speaking marine life wont survive being placed in freshwater. Some can go in either but without knowing specifically what kind it is its impossible to know.
