Mavic Pro wouldn't turn off - props kept spinning!

I was returning home with battery, got the Mavic back to my back garden at 20% battery and it stopped in mid air, not responding to controls but was just in a place I could reach it. Did my normal reach up and grab it and hold the left stick down to kill the power but the props stayed spinning at maximum and didn't cut off after a few seconds like normal. Had absolutely no idea what to do, how to cut the power? Didn't want to reach up and press the power button on the Mavic, worried about my fingers getting cut. So I just held it there with the props on full power until the battery reached about 9% and the props finally cut off.

Any idea what happened and how what to do instead next time? TIA

Ok, thanks. Is there a good way to stop the props in this situation? I thought about turning the Mavic upside down by hand hand but didn't try it, it was really fighting me.

both sticks down and in, or turn it upside down.
