Help dropped o-ring into the engine

Soooo, I was changing my turbo pedestal o-rings Saturday and when removing the lower ones, the smaller flipped out of the bore and right into the larger and right out of site. I tried to look with a mirror, picture with my camera to see better, fish it out with a grabber thingy, suck it out with vacuum. Finally I looked up that the larger bore should drain to the oil pan. Is this true? Should I worry about it in there? Do I need to drop the pan to get it out? Can I leave it in?

That sucks...but it won't pass through the oil pump pick-up screen. Maybe change the oil and if you get lucky the o-ring will end up by the drain hole and you can fish it out.
