It has nothing to do with the "child lock" It is a know problem in this car, they tend to get caught in lock. Only thing to do, is to take of the panel then the outside handle, and through that hole destroy the plastic covering the lock, a large screwdriver and hammer will do! Then you can release the lock, while you pull the inside release handle. Buy new!

Is your car door set up to override the lock mechanism if the door handle is pulled?
If it is not set to override, is your door still locked when you use the handle?
If the door is unlocked, is your door latch in the open position when you test the handle?
If open, close the door latch (not the door, just the latch) and pull the handle to see if this releases.
If it doesn't, check to see if all the rods connecting to the latch mechanism and the handles are all in working order
