The sealing o-ring on the sensor body may be having a hard time getting past the surface rust. Try solvents/penetrants and try rocking/prying the sensor out gently.
If the plastic sensor body breaks off in the block, it isn't the end of the world as you will then have to break the pieces out or try threading a screw into the broken piece and pulling it out.
Avoid damaging the teeth on the crankshaft and if sensor pieces fall into the oil pan, try draining the oil. Adding oil back in through the top will also help wash the broken pieces out.

Remove the splash shield and oil filter if you need to.
