I just caught my 4yo son opening a 19 day old egg. Is there anyway to save it??

Depends on the damage. You can try to seal the cracks with nail polish or wax.

 

Keep incubators out of the reach of anyone you can't trust.

I keep mine in the cellar.

You can see the chick sad.png there's a big hole in the shell it's beyond sealing with wax unfortunately.
I lock the door but he got the key snd got in there. I'm so mad!
Is there any hope at all for the chick?

Cut a piece of plastic from a baggie and glue it onto the hole with nail polish. Before you do, mist the hole with warm water so it membrane doesn't dry out.
