The reason it gets stuck up is that it's as if you shut the door, so it naturally wouldn't just go back down when you push on it. If it did that would mean your door would fly open and wouldn't stay latched shut when you drive. All you have to do is pull up on the outside handle while pushing down on the latch to simulate exactly what you do when you open the door and it'll go down easily

On the metal rod that runs vertically up to the door handle, there should be a large yellow clip that holds the rod onto the handle. These break with regularity, look at the bottom of the inside of the door shell to see if it indeed has broken & fallen down.

Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

This happened to me, I removed the interior light fixture on the rear hatch and reached in to pull the connecting rod, this works for an one off opening, you will need to take the panel off once the hatch is open and repair your outer handle, our connection was broken at the handle which I repaired and it works great. Hope this helps.
