    Make sure it can breathe, I will try to get someone's attention. I am not a hatcher. Just be careful but make sure the nostrils can get air.

    As I wrote, I am not a hatcher, but helping can be done - but it is tricky. One danger I have read about is breaking blood vessels. I hope it all works out okay.

    It's a very real danger. And @Amiga suggested, one should read the assisted hating article before helping.
