That's a difficult nightmare to encounter. Sadly Ford didn't design the door panels to be removed with the door closed. You can remove the panels around the door handle- remove what you can and perhaps you can see something that is blocking the action of the handle and allow it to release- or you can release the cable manually. I doubt that this will help, but it's worth trying.

I believe the latch is locked up, and the door panel will have to be destroyed to gain access to repair the problem.
