Locked steering wheel

I have a 07 328xi and my car died in my driveway. I tried boosting the car and the starter doesn't even click. I'm in Canada and we're experiencing major cold. As a result my steering wheel locked and couldn't get my car into neutral. Thx to fellow bimmer posters I was able to override the transmission and get the car into neutral but the steering wheel is still locked. Essentially I'm asking if Anyone else experienced this?

Thx!

Other than this, I never experienced a problem with my car. I truly love it.
