Emergency Exit

I have a close friend who has a 2002 32V Southwind. Really nice loved coach...
He asked that I come over and look at his emergency exit window in his coach. He is in the next site to me here at Cattail Cove State Park Arizona...
It has a single handle release on the right side looking at it on the inside. He wanted to open it just to be sure..
Well apparently the handle just popped and couldn't move the glass. It has some resistance and feels like it is moving a pin or latch in the 2nd half of it's travel but neither one of us know which direction or how the exit window should move. We are afraid to push too hard in fear of breaking something... I don't see and hinges or anything to give us a clue.
Could someone who owns a like coach give is a clue?
Thanks in advance..

If ONLY a single handle EXIT Release, should be easy to visually verify unlocked; check frame inside and outside for any SCREWS that seem out of place (accidently or intentionally as someone tried to fix a rattle or leak?); it is VERY COMMON for the rubber gaskets to STICK and cause difficulty opening. This is WHY MFR Recommends every 6-12-months OPEN the EXIT windows and spray rubber w/ silicone spray.
