Internally pipped at least 24 hours, looks to be gasping.

I had the egg that hatched day 20 and nothing from the others except one chirped at me last night. Its chirping has gotten weaker and weaker and stopped for several hours. I decided to candle and it kinda looks like its gasping. What should I do?
 
You can pip it and very, VERY carefully help it out. If the chick has not pulled the blood back in from the membrane, helping it out will kill it.

No matter what you do, make sure you jack up humidity in the bator when you put the egg/chick back in.

WARM sopping wet washcloths.
