Right Rear Door Won't Unlock from Outside

A friend tried to open the rear door on the passenger side, and the door would not open, even though I was sitting in the driver's seat. I checked to make sure the child lock was not engaged; it was not. The door DID open when I walked around to it and opened it. Is there something I can do to fix this, or do I need to take it in for service?
