Default ceramic inside cylinder

Chrysler 4.7 motor, ceramic on plug splintered inside cylinder. Does anyone have experience retracting the ceramic from a cylinder with out disassembly of the block? Thanks in advance.

Make an attachment for a shop vac using some small hose that will fit inside the plug hole. If it's too big to go up the hose at least use it to keep it sucked to the end of the hose as you pull it out.

Thanks for the information! It was cylinder 8, couldn't exactly reach in with a vac unfortunately but hit it with compressed air and some shrapnel came out. Not sure exactly how or why the plug disintegrated the way it did but didn't seem to be any noise when we cranked it over with plug hole open, fuel disabled.
