what could injured Elvis have done to save ldg? Can't Post

Most have you have seen the recent video of the Flying Elvis crash landing under canopy breaking his pelvis and other bones. What, if anything, could he have done in the last 50-100 feet to have saved the landing or at least have significantly reduced vertical velocity? It looks like he is coming down very fast. I don't do hook turns so I dont know much about canopy control in this kind of a situation. Although my video is low resolution, it looks like he is in deep brakes during the last 30 feet or so. It is painful to watch.
