I have an egg that pipped overnight last night but I noticed yolk coming out of the pip. What does this mean?

Thank you :-( the pip has gotten bigger and I see a little beak movement inside. So fingers are crossed.

Could it be ruptured yolk sac? If so, I can't remember the proper name, but it can be a symptom of mushy chick disease.

Yeah if this chick makes it, it will be a true miracle. It hadn't done anything for 30 hours. When I started helping it, I realized he was stuck fast to the egg and his wing was stuck fast to his face. So I worked on him with warm compresses for the last 3 hours still in the shell and was able to get him unstuck. His eyes are open& he is alert. Very weak and still half in the shell. :-( Breaks my heart.
