Machine down the outside diameter of the socket
Drill the crank bolt out

Borrow one? Either from a local cyclist or pop down to a traditional bike shop ask if you can borrow it to do there and then

Although I have the Campagnolo peanut butter wrench (and it is a lovely thing) in my regular tools there is an Icetoolz tool with a 15mm thin wall socket at one end and a plain 15mm spanner at the other (which is handy for pedals). It is also rubber covered so it is kind to hands and cranks.
Put ‘icetoolz 34a2’ into ebay, Google or Amazon.

While we’re on the subject, there is a Facebook group “Bicycle tools- using and collecting” which many here would be interested in- if not already following.
