You should be able to clamp a bearing splitter into the groove between the bearing and the spindle. Then use a standard puller on the bearing splitter.

If that doesn't work, take an angle grinder and grind it at 12 O'Clock until it is super thin.  Then hit it with a hammer and it should split.

If he was running late and didn't get to it until 12:30, would it still work?
