Starfish stuck.

Anyone ever had one get stuck? I was going to post this today to see what I should do but couldn't get pics to send from my phone. He was stuck for at least 2 days since I hadn't seen if for a while and once I found him I figured I'd give him a day. He was on the backside of some rock so I had to tear apart the tank to get this shot from the front. I tried to poke and prod him but couldn't get him out. I eventually used a set of pliers and crushed the area between his legs and within minutes he was out and moving.

Do you think he would have made it out without my intervention? I couldn't find any other way out of the hole except the way he was hanging out.
