The only thing you can really do at this point is leave the chick alone in what is left of the egg and see if it comes through. Occasionally, birds will absorb the yolk sac on their own outside of the shell, but they are at a higher risk of infection from contaminated yollk sac.

I've had some make it. I stuff them back in the bottom half of the shell, wrap them loosely in a damp washcloth and set them back in the incubator. Without an incubator it would be harder but you could probably keep them in a warm box (heating pad) and make sure to keep the cloth damp. For future reference...
