fix wrong hole while drilling concrete


First time drilling on concrete, trying to mount a TV wall kit.

I was drilling on concrete, and my drill bit got loose and shaky, and it broke extra concrete. Now I have to fix it so the anchor can correctly fit. Now it just drops as seen on the pic. I'm also attaching a pic of a correct hole.

I have Lanco Spackling, but I don't know if that's too soft to fill the hole.
Can I use this and fill the complete 2" deep hole? How long will I have to wait?
Or is there a better product/method for filling in cement drilled holes gone wrong?

I don't want my TV to fall later on because one of the screws got loose in the spackling fix.

Thanks

Try a flat bladed screw driver inside of it and try backing it out.
If it's sticking out slightly you may be able to get a hold of it with a pair of plyers.

Why not just use epoxy to repair the hole?

yes, that's what joecaption said.

But I still have questions, like if I can drill thru it later ?
The hole still has to be in the same spot.

I went to the store, they also suggested Hydraulic Cement.

Epoxy can be drilled. Don't think cement would be a reliable filler for that situation.
