Head pulled off--case still in die

This happened to me for the first time in my 54 years of reloading.
I pulled out the decapper stem and tried to punch it out from the top to no avail then tried to twist a screw driver inside the case to no avail.
this is how I got out.
I cleaned out the inside of case with sand paper then
I poured melted cerrosafe in it then punched it out from the top with a drift punch it came out very easy.

Yeah, and you can reuse the cerrosafe.
