Bent wishbone bolt snapped

Alright lads. Have a wee issue i hope someone can help me with. Lost the power steering the other day and went straight into a barrier. Good thing is it was the tyre that took the brunt son no body damage just bent wish bone and stuff. Issue is when we stripped the wishbone down the very bottom bolt snapped and we cant get the rest of it out.

Happen to anyone else and has anyone any solutions...

Thanks in advance guys

Loads sticking out so could weld a nut to the thread. The heat will loosen the bolt and your have a head to get a spanner or socket on
