Default S-vid input has prong stuck inside

Hey guys. I was using an s-vid cable on my laptop, and upon pulling the cable out (probably due to my own carelessness) I discovered that one of the five prongs was stuck inside the input.

My question is, how should I go about removing said prong? Am I going to be forced to send it in? Or perhaps there is another method I haven't thought of yet...

Anyway, any help you can offer would be of utmost help.

If you can actually see the prong a very fine pick such as dentistry pick may be able to dislodge the prong enough to pull it out.
There are some very small drill bits that will fit into the input , using a very small(micro) amount of crazy glue on the tip try to attach to the prong it shouldnt take much to pull it out.Just dont use to much crazy glue.
Come to think of it 1 of those dentistry vacume tools may be able to suck it out take it to the dentist
