The best thing I would think to do is to put coconut oil on the exposed membrane to avoid it drying out. Did you candle the egg before trying to rid of it?
My guess is that the rest of the eggs hatched a few days before, OP guessed this one just wouldn’t hatch after giving it time, cracked it open assuming it was dead, but found it alive.
