Thanks for the response, but unfortunately, that's not really what I was
looking for, as it was not feasible - I was unable to open another
terminal in order to kill the ping process. I probably should have
elaborated more, but I was running this from a fixit live cd, but do you
know if it is possible to open more than one terminal over serial?
I ended up having it powered off earlier today, and when I powered it back
on, I made sure to have the correct console keyboard layout, and CTRL + C
was working correctly.
