Stuck zoom ring

I hope someone can help I have a Pentax 75-300 telephoto lens for my *ist DL. I recently used it at Miami Metro Zoo until my camera battery died. I put the camera with lens still attached into the bag. A few weeks later, while attempting to take pictures at Hobe Sound, I couldn't get the zoom ring to turn past 75 mm. I'm crushed. Summer vacation has started and I really want to get into my photography.

My son-in-law somehow managed to free the lens. I don't know what he did that I hadn't tried already.......all I know is I am so thankful and excited. Summer break has started and I want to go out and photograph the beautiful sights I have available right here in Florida.
