Premature hatch, what to do next?

Hi, I bought some Welsh Harlequin hatching eggs, and of the 8 in my brinsea eco incubator, 7 made it out, the other died before it could internally pip. 6 of the ducklings got out no problems, and are all doing really well. However one had pipped the wrong end of the shell. He was still in there a g...
