CHEVY PARKING BRAKE CABLE BROKE

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe

Brakes problem
2004 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 186000 miles

I set the parking brake last night and this morning, the cable broke when I attempted to release it. The brake is still engaged, thus making it impossible to drive.
How can I release it?

The release cable broke? If you look down under the dash at the park brake mechanism, you should be able to determine where the cable attached to, and actuate the lever manually to release it. The portion of the cable may be still in place, that will make it easy.
