Oil change-Oil drain plug does not come off

The oil drain plug keeps turning but does not come out. I double-checked this and its actually turning but just does not come off.

Any ideas??

You try to pull on it and turn it? Apply pressure to it amd see if it'll catch the threads.

Did this with car on ramps so space is limited. Also, there is very slight oil leak around the plug. I will try pulling and turning at same time.

Should I go get a new bolt in the meantime or are the oil pan threads done and whole oil pan needs to be replaced?

hopefully its just the bolt threads that are striped, id get a new bolt just incase and hopefully the pan you can retap it if the threads are bad
