You will need to gain console access or get someone there to
gain console access. Then login as root and add that non-root
account to the wheel group (or have the _trusted_ local person do it).
Have the local person log out and you can then immediately log in as
the non-root, su to root, check if anyone else is connected and then
change the root password.
