I will tell you how I have removed a stuck bit on several occasions. The bits however have been stuck because they were left in the router for years on end and not because of inserting them wrong. First I put vise grip pliers on the bit to hold it securely. Then I put the router on the ground so that the rotation was going against the vise grips. Then stepping on the router I turned it on by simply pushing the switch of a power strip that it was already plugged into. A router doesn't have the torque that a drill has so it doesn't want to jump all over the floor. You will know immediately if the bit is loose because the will be spinning but not the pliers. If it doesn't then immediately shut it off otherwise you could burn out the motor.
