I just had this happen and posted about it on the assisted hatch thread. I would pinch the membrane if it didn't break through so it can breathe, then wait, leaving it wrapped in a damp paper towel. It will not have absorbed the yolk sack yet because of the position. Your egg, your decision but I took the chance with mine because without help it was dead for sure.
Lots of good info on that thread.
