Q: Emergency brake stuck on the floor

It sounds to me like the return spring may be to blame here. Try pulling back on the pedal while pulling the release handle. If it still wont move, look and make sure the release handle is pulling the release cable properly. Sometimes the tabs on the release handle break off and can no longer pull the cable. If you need assistance, YourMechanic employs qualified technicians to inspect and determine your emergency brake problem.
