I would try cutting off the first hinge eye, that should expose enough of the pin to pull it out and won't compromise the hinge strength. When you make a new pin, be sure there is sufficient radius and no burr at the bend that could create a stress riser and future failure as you experienced. Boelube or beeswax is a good lubricant to make the pins easy to insert and remove.
