Default broke my radiator drain plug

I broke off the end of the drain plug. There was still some left to unscrew it but how do I get it all the way out?

should I just grab what is left with some vice grips and pull it out.
I just did not what to brake it more and end up with a real problem.

just was a bit scared that it was going to brake off in there

Jb weld works great for this. Put a little on both ends, wait for it to set in a couple hours and gently twist out
