This is going to be a good challenge
what happen is that the safety lock is stuck and most likely rusted and not releasing to allow the tire down
use WD40 or any available penetrating oil and spray the inside the middle

best if you can have it on a lift and use a long flat head screw driver to help releasing the safety
