Mistakenly drinking water while fasting

Q: A person forgetfully drinks water in Ramadan. While drinking water he suddenly remembers that he is fasting. He stops drinking water but while he was remembering that he is fasting he might have drank a little water. That means he drinks a little water remembering that he is fasting, but he did not have any intention to break the fast. He then continues the rest of the day fasting. Is his fasting valid?

A: If he is not certain if he drank anything from that point onwards then the fast is done.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
