Snapped Cyl Head Temp Sensor

I was swapping out the two reference sensors (flywheel) and the Cyl Head Temp sensor today as they rubber coating on the wires had dry rotted and fallen away and the plastic connectors were failing in the engine bay. All went well with the two reference sensors - however, when I put a deep socket on the Cly Head Sensor - it began to come out after a couple turns with the rachet - it kept feeling like it was backing out right up until the bolt end snapped off the sensor leaving the threaded part still in the cylinder head. There is a good bit exposed to grab onto with needle nose vice grips but it is not coming out.

I will post a pic shortly - however anyone run into this and have any ideas on how to get the remaining piece out so I can complete the job?
