I had this happen to me a while ago.
I just removed the top and bottom part of the flashlight and was able to
hit the batteries out. It's a mess, but the flashlight is salvageable!

[Shop-talk] How to remove corroded batteries from an Aluminum case
We found the long-AWOL Maglite, only to find that the alkaline batteries
went TU a looooong time ago and are badly corroded into the case. I've
picked away as much loose corrosion as possible, but those babies seem
to be welded in there. What's a good way to extricate the batteries? I
suspect it'll require a chemical solution, as I ran a couple of sheet
metal screws into the rear battery case and tried to pull, no joy.
