[DML] Hood Locked!

I know there are a couple of procedure in getting a hood open when the cable breaks.  I checked the archives and Ken K's post said to use a strong wire and "L" shape it and work it in.  Some said the try and cut the loops with a hacksaw.  The last is trying to push up the carpet and board and try to grab the latch.  
  I was doing some work on my remote actuator set up and removed the linkage arm that connects the actuator to the cable and the latch mechanism.  I walked away for a minute and then decided I didn't have enough time to finish so without thinking I closed the hood.  It was one of those "OH CRAP" moments the second I closed the hood.  The actuator is not in the trunk space and the cable is dangling free......I know, I know....I'm a dumbass!  LOL!!!
  I'd like to try getting to it from underneath but does pushing up the board and carpet with a stick give enough room to get something up there?
