Reload film-middle of roll - Photography

I have an Olympus Stylus zoom 140, and in the middle of the roll, the camera has frozen up and the error message states that the film is improperly loaded, and that I need to reload the film. I don't want to loose the pictures I've already taken. Any suggestion on how to save the pictures, but get things working again? Would a camera shop be able to save the pictures? Thanks in advance.

    I've done this. A walk-in closet at night, with the room lights off and
    the room and closet doors closed. And be careful to only touch the edges of
    the film. If your watch has a luminescent dial, keep it out of the closet.

    First, try to force a rewind of the film. Ther'e a little button on
    the camera for doing this.
    If the film won't rewind, go to your local camera store and ask them
    to remove the film in the dark. Most labs have a small 'dark box' for
    this purpose..
