Get another person, while one pulls the cable the other tries pushing down & pulling up on the hood quite vigorously at the same time. If that doesn.t work you can see if you can go up from underneath the bumper with a very long extension(s) and try removing the latch bolts (which I doubt will be accessible), or try to get something very thin but sturdy between the hood and frame and try to unlatch it. Good luck.
